The holiday season has arrived, and luckily, there are plenty of ways to celebrate in Saskatoon. From a magical enchanted forest full of holiday lights to a special Christmas-themed concert, check out the top three can’t miss holiday events in Saskatoon this year.


BHP Enchanted Forest

Head over to Saskatoon’s Forestry Farm Park and Zoo for their BHP Enchanted Forest experience. 2020 marks the 22nd year of the event, which is hosted by the Saskatoon Zoo Foundation and the City Hospital Foundation. For those that have never been, the BHP Enchanted Forest is a spectacular outdoor lights show that usually welcomes over 75,000 visitors for their light walk. This year, due to the pandemic, the light walk has been cancelled. However, a drive-thru version of the event is moving forward, allowing you to enjoy the magical holiday lights from the safety of your own vehicle. BHP Enchanted Christmas is on now until January 8.


A Candlelight Christmas

The SSO is hosting both a virtual and in-person event this year called A Candlelight Christmas. For this event, people far and wide will be invited to hear beautiful seasonal music played at the historic St. John’s Cathedral. Although the SSO are performing all over this holiday season, they will play one live show in Saskatoon on December 12 at 7:30 pm. There are limited tickets available for the in-person show, but more available for online access. 


Light Up the Village

The Western Development Museum in Saskatoon is hosting Light Up the Village this holiday season. The exhibition is taking place from December 1 until January 9 and will see their Heritage Village completely decked out in lights for Christmas. Tours of the village are available, and all proceeds are going towards repairs and restoration of the village. 


If you plan on visiting Saskatoon this holiday season, then we recommend reserving a room at the Home Inn & Suites Saskatoon South. A top-notch location, comfortable accommodation, and family-friendly amenities await, not to mention the fact that we’re only a short distance from some of the top holiday 2020 events in the city.
