48th Annual Folk Fest
Regina’s 48th annual Folk Festival was a huge success! With attendance larger than ever, it’s no surprise that the Regina Folk Fest is one the most highly anticipated events of the summer!
The festival features artists from across Canada – a great way to showcase the amazing musical talent that we have here in our country, and in our own province.
To name a few, this year’s headliners featured Tegan and Sara, Lights and Buffy Sainte-Marie.
Any music event happening in the city, you’ll likely see our Regina Ambassador Suzy. See what she has to say…
“Tomorrow morning, I’ll wake up sad. It happens every year. #RFF2017 #seeyqr”

Saskatchewan Roughriders Game
You haven’t experienced Regina fully until you’ve been to a Riders game! Get in the action and be a part of the “13th man” in the stands. In Saskatchewan football fans bleed green and provide a fully immersive experience to all those in attendance. Through rain, snow or sun, they pack the stands in support of their favourite team, making them some of the best fans in the league. Read how Suzy spends a Rider game in her blog post, here.

“Rider games feel like a cross between a family reunion and a music festival: you’ve got a bunch of people who see each other only at this event but are absolutely pumped that everyone’s there, and they’re all excited out of their minds to watch the show.”
“They’re all nuts super passionate about their team – like, more than the average football fanbase. You may roll your eyes and you may say, Everyone thinks that about the fans in their city. But nope. I’m telling you: They might actually bleed green. Once, when I was doing that cable show, I had to go to the Grey Cup and interview a bunch of them, so I know about this firsthand.”
Cathedral Village Arts Festival!
One of Regina’s favorite events took place last week, the 26th annual Cathedral Village Arts Festival! Throughout the week, individuals of all ages enjoyed music, dance, and theater. On Saturday afternoon, 13th Avenue closed its street to traffic and transformed into a marketplace for artists, buskers, and food vendors!
The festival left us questioning, what isn’t there to love about Regina? It’s a great place for people to come out and see the creativity that exists in the city!
Our very own Regina Ambassador Suzy hit the streets to document her experience at the festival! Check out these incredible photos!
“This morning, @robynkoester and I took our kids to the Cathedral Village Arts Festival, where we ate kettle corn, people-watched, and stumbled across the most amazing wedding. The CVAF brings out the best crowd of creatives, musicians, and weirdos. #seeyqr#cathedralvillageartsfestival #cvaf2017#congratsstephenandjess“
The Spring of Nostalgia
A 90’s tour? Oh say it ain’t so! Regina took a trip down memory lane this Spring with the ‘I Love the 90’s Tour.’ This tour featured some of our favorite classic 90’s bands such as: The Tea Party, Weezer, Vanilla Ice, Color Me Badd, Young MC, Rob Base, Salt-N-Pepa, Prozzak, Jimmy Eat World, Everclear, Vertical Horizan, and Fastball!
Check out what Regina Ambassador Suzy thought of this tour:
“I can summon music. I’m the Music Summoner. My cape has the Bandsintown app symbol on it, and I only use my powers for the good of all humankind (but only the humankind that dwells in my immediate vicinity).So, okay, I was on Twitter one day and I said something like (but not necessarily): “I love 90s music so much, it’s so great, I’d marry it, etc.”
That was all it took. It was like the magic horn (like a bugle, but richer) in the Narnia series that Father Christmas gave to Susan, with the instruction that she should blow it in emergencies and some kind of help would come to her. Twitter is my magic horn, and musical emergencies are a real thing. Don’t call me crazy behind my back; I have evidence.”
