Special Programming

There are tons of great things happening in addition to our musical programming!

According to a study conducted by the Environics Institute in 2011, the urban Indigenous population in Canada is now at approximately 600,000 and that is an all-time high since the beginning of colonization. There are now more Indigenous People living in urban centres across Canada than there are living in Indigenous territories and communities on reserves, in Métis settlements and in Inuit communities. It is important to note that the urban Indigenous population in Regina is approximately 12% of the population and is quickly growing. What better time for Regina’s urban community to engage in Indigenous traditional culture so we can all learn together. This year, we are excited to feature Traditional hand games with Archie Weenie and Family, Cree and Saulteaux Syllabic rock designs with Darren Okemaysim and Lynn Cote, Programming with the Buffalo People Arts Institute and the City of Regina’s Tipi display! 


Bike Valet
You can safely leave your bike with a trained bike wrangler (read: volunteer) near the SW corner of the park, right by the Knox Metropolitan Church. The Bike Valet will be open 5 pm to 1 am Friday and 11 am to 1 am Saturday and Sunday. Pick your bike up by 1 am to ensure its safe return! You'll be issued a valet tag when you drop your bike off. If you lose the tag, you'll have to give a description to the volunteers and wait til the rest of the bikes have been handed out at the end of each night.

Regina Folk Festival 2018. Be there.
