Prairieland Park, one of Saskatoon’s largest spaces to host events, plans to add a new $15-million building and is asking city council for a letter of support.
A new 80,000 square foot trade facility would help out during events such as the Western Canadian Crop Production Show which is getting bigger each year and outgrowing the current space.
CEO Mark Regier said they’ll be putting up a 10,000 square foot tent in January to handle all the demands for more space at the show.
Other shows, like Gardenscape and Homestyles, are also looking for more room.
A letter of support from the city would be used to apply for funding from a federal program.
