Measures have been taken to provide a comfortable, safe and enjoyable experience for everyone at the Festival. Below are just some of the ways we are keeping the health & safety of our visitors and volunteers a top priority. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation!
We ask anyone who feels unwell, has a fever or any other COVID-19 symptoms to please stay home.
Masks are mandatory when visiting or volunteering at the Saskatoon Festival of Trees.
Proof of Vaccination
Effective October 1, 2021 proof of COVID vaccination (or negative test from within the previous 72 hours) is required when visiting the Western Development Museum where the Festival of Trees is held. For information on how to access your proof of vaccination, please visit this link. Children under the age of 12 are exempt from the proof of vaccination or negative test requirement.
Tap & Swipe
The Festival of Trees has gone cashless! Debit or credit will be used for all purchases including gingerbread cookies, trees, wreaths, centrepieces and gingerbread houses. Raffle ticket purchases can be made by credit card only.
Guests will be given the opportunity to have individual tables for their group, rather than be seated with people they do not know. This will provide a more enjoyable and comfortable experience for everyone. Please purchase special event tickets for all guests in your group in one transaction so we may seat you appropriately (if 6 people will be seated together as a group, one person should purchase 6 tickets).
During Your Visit
We ask that you allow for a little extra time to get through admission to the displays or special events. Please be respectful and kind to fellow visitors, guests, volunteers and Western Development Museum staff. During your visit:
Please use hand sanitizer upon arrival. Sanitizer can also be found throughout the Festival.
Please maintain one large Christmas tree distance (6ft or 2 meters) between you and visitors outside of your group
Please do not touch Festival displays, decorations or Museum artifacts
Please respect all stanchions, ropes and directional signage. We know the displays are irresistible especially to our youngest visitors, but for their safety please keep everyone from going behind any ropes, stanchions or barriers.
