All About Saskatoon
Like any truly great host city, there’s much more to Saskatoon than meets the eye.
Beyond our world-class athletic facilities and welcoming accommodations, you’ll find so much to see, do, and discover here in Saskatoon — whether you’re organizing, competing, or cheering from the stands.
Saskatoon is a destination of discovery: a place where authentic prairie hospitality and acclaimed farm-to-fork dining come together with more than six millennia of vibrant Indigenous history. Discover the eclectic neighbourhoods, world-class cultural attractions, and breathtaking natural beauty of this land as you enjoy an unforgettable, only-in-Saskatoon experience.

Winters bring plenty of soft, white snow, perfect for outdoor recreation, with temperatures ranging from 5°C to -30°C (41°F to -22°F).
