The Saskatoon Sports and Leisure Show is the biggest show of its kind in Saskatchewan, and brings more of the vendors you want to see to Prairieland Park in Saskatoon. We bring summer to Saskatoon in March by filling each of the halls with sporting goods, RVs, boats, and more that you need for your outdoor lifestyle.

 

The Saskatoon Wildlife Federation sponsors the show each year and works to bring in vendors and games to appeal to a wide range of visitors. An archery shoot, "The Wild One", is put on by the Saskatoon Straight Shooters drawing enthusiastic crowds, and our speakers never fail to get our guests excited about the outdoors.
