The SaskFestivals program supports and encourages eligible festival organizations and series presenters in the province that have a positive impact on the arts in Saskatchewan. This includes financial support for their artistic programs and services and governance, management, administrative and operational functions.

The current Annual and Multi-Year programs will be replaced with Development and Established programs in 2019, based on the recently completed program review. New guidelines for both of these programs will be available in the coming months. For information on changes to the program, click here. Please contact the program consultants if you have any questions.

SaskFestivals is a Saskatchewan Arts Board program supported by funding from SaskCulture Inc. through the Saskatchewan Lotteries Trust Fund for Sport, Culture and Recreation
