Another Fun Packed Weekend Right in Our Own Back Yard!

(Last Updated On: September 30, 2017)

This weekend Nipawin and surrounding communities prove there is plenty of things to do. Who will be able to say they took all the events in?

9:30 am – 4:30 pm Beginner Team Penning/Sorting Clinic Southern Cross Arena, Carrot River, SK, Carrot River, SK Saskatchewan

Article continued after advertisement

You can start your day early and head out to Southern Cross Arena and learn about the popular sports of Team Penning & Sorting. Team penning is a timed event with a team of three riders must sort out three specific cows from a herd and move them away from the herd and into a small pen. The catch is the rest of the herd cannot follow. Because cows are herd animals, that is not as easy as it sounds. Did I mention, they only have 90 seconds to do it?

10:00 am – 4:30 pm North East SPCA Trade Show Generations Event Centre, Nipawin SK

Check out the great deals and awesome eats while supporting the North East SPCA over at Generations Event Centre in Nipawin, don’t miss out on a chance to pick up some of Pat’s famous baking!

1:00 pm – 4:00 pm Art and Culture Day – White Fox   White Fox Community Centre, White Fox SK

With your belly full, it’s time to relax and take in all the arts and culture over in White Fox at the Community Hall. Enjoy all the displays, sip some tea or coffee, and watch the ethnic dancers.

Supper’s Ready! You have two choices for supper, you can keep heading west and drive up to the Love Gospel Jamboree Grounds and enjoy their pig roast or head on back to Nipawin and pop into the Legion for their weekly Saturday Supper.
