This is Canada’s largest annual cultural event with over 70 different events held in the host city.

Tourism Saskatoon has asked the City of Saskatoon to contribute $350,000 for what they hope is $10 million to $12 million in economic return.

Saskatoon has only held the event in 2007, which Nelly Furtado hosted at the former Credit Union Centre, now SaskTel Centre.
