Family Day Monday, February 20, 2017

With your help we can bring back Regina's famous Waskimo Winter Festival in Wascana Park. We're calling it Waskimo 2.0, bigger and better than ever before with family activities indoors and out.

We need a huge community effort to pull this off -- and you can help. All proceeds will be used to create a family fun day for all ages. Thank you for your donation - large or small - on behalf of all the people of Regina!

Let’s make this happen together!

The last time Waskimo happened was the year 2001. A whole generation of kids has grown up without knowing the joy a winter festival in Regina. We want to change that and create Waskimo 2.0 on Family Day this February.

We want this to be an entire community-wide challenge! By crowd funding, we will not only raise the funds we need, we’re also giving our entire community an opportunity to contribute and help bring back this wonderful event to our city, our families and our children.

The Conexus Arts Centre will be the hub of the event with family activities
indoors and out:
• Horse-drawn sleigh rides
• Tobogganing
• Cross-country skiing
• “Hole-ympic” Outhouse Races
• Fat bikes
• Horse-drawn sleigh rides
• Face painting
• Storybook princesses and super heroes
• Children’s Stage.
• Snowshoeing

The first year of any project can be financially challenging. We have already raised about $25,000 from corporate donations and now invite every Regina citizen to kick in a donation – large or small – to help kickstart Waskimo. What a tremendous opportunity we have to re-create what was once one of the true highlights of winter in Regina! Let’s see what we can make happen together!

Totally remember the wind-sailing on the west-side lake in the 80s.
