Culture Days 2020 Weyburn Proclamation
Culture Days is a national celebration of arts and culture. At the end of each September, millions of people attend thousands of participatory arts and culture events across the country. Culture Days programs invite the public to get hands-on and behind-the-scenes to highlight the importance of arts and culture in our communities. This year the celebrations have been extended to a 4-week run, read through the Culture Days 2020 page to find out more about the changes to this year’s festivities.

The Metis Nation Legislative Assembly (MNLA) is the governing authority of MN-S, made up of the Presidents of Métis Locals and the Provincial Métis Council. The MNLA has the authority to enact legislation, regulations, rules and resolutions governing the affairs and conduct of the Métis in Saskatchewan.
Open Air Market
Weyburn Open Air Market is a Registered Saskatchewan Not-For-Profit Public Market located at the Weyburn City Centre Mall, with Vendors set up inside and outside in the parking lot and courtyard, where you will find products that are made, grown, baked, home based businesses, or items being resold (Market Garage sale tables). Market is governed and run by a volunteer Board of Directors.
The Southeast Newcomer Services (SNS) is a self-service, walk-in centre available to assist Newcomers arriving from outside Canada, from another Canadian province or relocating from an Aboriginal community to settle in Southeast Saskatchewan.
Our mandate is to provide individualized information to each individual that enters our organization in order to promote healthy and inclusive communities in Southeast Saskatchewan.
1948, a key event occurred that would have long-ranging implications. During its first term in office, T.C. Douglas’ CCF provincial government created the SASKATCHEWAN ARTS BOARD, the second arts council in the world and modeled after The British Arts Council. Through an Order-in-Council, Premier Douglas was quoted as saying:
“The people of the Prairies are hungry … for things of the mind and the spirit: good music,
literature, paintings and folk songs.”
Weyburn Arts Council was the first arts council established in Saskatchewan in 1964 by a City bylaw, and is governed by a 10-member volunteer board.
The council is funded by grants, fees and donations which are graciously accepted. As a non-profit charitable organization, Weyburn Arts Council can issue charitable donation receipts. Legacies or bequeathments are accepted.
Weyburn Arts Council is an affiliate of the Saskatchewan Arts Council and a member of the Museum Association of Saskatchewan. We are an advisory board overseeing the City of Weyburn galleries (Allie Griffin, Credit Union and Signal Hill) and programming. As well, we manage the City of Weyburn permanent arts collection.
The Weyburn Crocus Quilters Guild was founded in 2001. Since then, it has grown to over 60 members.
The Aims and Objectives of the Guild are:
- To provide fellowship
- To promote the growth and appreciation of quilting
- To sponsor quilt related events, workshops, speakers, quilt shows, group excursions, demonstrations, trunk shows
- To be active community members.
The group of around 12 members has been around for a number of years. They enjoy the comradeship of other likeminded carving enthusiasts through working on projects, carving, and socializing.
The group meets every week at the Weyburn Public Library.
September to April they meet twice a week Wednesdays from 12:30 pm to 2:30 pm
and Fridays from 1 to 3 p.m.
May to August meet once a week on Wednesdays from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m.
