Now that COVID-19 cases have dropped all over the country, it’s finally time for Regina to reopen. And that means plenty of summer events the whole family will enjoy. Regina has all kinds of events taking place this month, from an outdoor art walk celebrating Pride Month to the newly-announced Saskatchewan Art Gallery Day. Check out three can’t-miss events this June.
Pride StoryWalk at Wascana Park
Celebrate Pride Month with the Regina Public Library. On June 12th and 13th only, they are hosting Pride StoryWalk at Wascana Park. This outdoor, COVID-friendly event will see the pages of beloved Canadian book Pride Colours by Robin Stevenson spaced throughout the walking path around the lake. Pride Colours is a celebration of unconditional love and is suitable for both children and adults. The event ends with a sweet explanation of each colour of the pride flag.
World Migratory Bird Day
On June 12th, from 10:00 am until 3:00 pm, the Wascana Lake Migratory Bird Sanctuary and the Saskatchewan Science Centre are hosting a one-of-a-kind event in honour of World Migratory Bird Day. The hosts invite guests to “sing, fly, soar - like a bird.” A variety of educational and fun activities will take place at the Sanctuary throughout the day, including indigenous drum making, pond dipping, a guided bird hike, a migration obstacle course, music therapy, and all kinds of arts and craft activities. Please note that masks and social distancing are mandatory.
Saskatchewan Art Gallery Day
The provincial government has proclaimed June 12th Saskatchewan Art Gallery Day. What does this mean? Well, on June 12th, commercial galleries all over the province will come together, open their doors to the public, and host art gallery walks. Participating galleries in Regina include Yvette Moore Gallery, Assiniboia Gallery, Traditions Hand Craft Gallery, The Lobby Gallery, Hansen Ross House, Slate Fine Art Gallery, and more. Visit the event’s official website for a full list of galleries.
