It is known for its art spaces and museums but most importantly, it has a lively and postcard-worthy natural backdrop for your leisure walks or hikes.

Summer Night Market
The Regina Farmers’ Market is a popular venue for locals and tourists alike. When you go to the Summer Night Market, you can interact directly with local producers that make, bake, grow, and design products in Saskatchewan with the goal of representing the city and province’s booming diversity.
Running from July until the end of August, the Market Under the Stars is Regina’s best night market where you can truly soak up the city’s dynamic atmosphere and buy local products under a blanket of stars.
The glow of Saskatchewan’s world-famous sunsets gives a magical glow to the live music venues at the market that invite you to dance with your friends.
If you want to find your center and your vibe is all about being in the present, you can enjoy outdoor yoga classes. And if you consider yourself a foodie, the varied local culinary options are endless and are a great addition to your exploration of Regina.
