June is here, marking the beginning of summer. The official kickoff to summer is just around the corner on June 21st, promising longer days filled with sunshine and outdoor adventures. June is extra special as it celebrates both Pride Month and Indigenous History Month, offering us a unique opportunity to honour diversity, culture, and history. So, let's dive into the excitement and explore all the exciting events June has to offer!


Saskatoon Pride is a time to recognize, value, and celebrate Two Spirit, queer, lesbian, gay, trans, bi, and other gender and sexually diverse people and their families. With so many fun activities like the Pride Family Picnic, Pride Bingo, and Pride Lawn Bowling, also you can’t forget the iconic Pride Parade on June 22nd. See a complete list of activities here.

If you haven’t heard yet, Saskatoon has a new sports team this year, the Saskatoon Berries and they have kicked off their season! Their games happen throughout the summer, with 16 home games this month at Carins Field at the Gordie Howe Sports Complex. The games are great for any baseball fan but also a fun environment for anyone, and tickets start at just $12! Bring out the whole family and a hotdog, snacks, and the featured 9Mile Saskatoon Berry Beer!

The Saskatchewan Rattlers also kicked off their season and are on a 2-0-win streak! They have three home games this month at SaskTel Centre. Grab a group of friends or your family and head out and enjoy the game (find out everything you need to know in this Game Day Guide). Let’s pack the Snack Pit and Go Rattlers Go!

Indigenous History Month

As I highlighted above, June is National Indigenous History Month in Canada, and it is an opportunity to continue learning about the Indigenous culture, traditions, and experiences of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis people.

On June 8th at Wanuskewin, attend a Beading Workshop - PRIDE Hanging Earrings with the talented Honey Willow nêhiyaw Studio, perfect for National Indigenous Peoples Day and Pride! On June 6th and 13th, for a 2-part series, learn how to create your own red willow tipi led by Lyndon Linklater at Remai Modern for their Red Willow Tipi Weaving Workshop.
