“Frost Regina will contribute to our civic pride and cultural vibrancy,” said Mayor Sandra Masters. “Regina is a winter city and it’s time for us to embrace all of the opportunities that our prairie winters have to offer. I want to thank the Regina Winter Festival Committee and all of the community organizations for creating this incredible week-long event for our residents and visitors to enjoy.”

Regina’s living skies will also become a big part of the celebration. A hi-tech drone show at Mosaic Stadium will provide futuristic entertainment for all ages. Admission to the show will be free, courtesy of the City of Regina.
“It is rewarding to see the vision of this festival coming to life,” said City Councillor and Co-Chair of the Regina Winter Festival Committee, Lori Bresciani. “Thank you to all members of the Regina Winter Festival Committee and the host hubs including Regina Exhibition Association Limited, Provincial Capital Commission, Regina Downtown Business Improvement District and Regina Warehouse Business Improvement District. I am so looking forward to seeing the community take part in the joy, fun and magic of winter in Regina.”

“The Government of Saskatchewan is proud to support this new winter festival,” Jeremy Harrison, Minister Responsible for Tourism Saskatchewan, said. “Frost Regina will animate our capital city and inspire residents and visitors to embrace the snowy season. The event is a welcome addition to the province’s tourism resources. It will boost the visitor economy and motivate other communities to tap their potential to develop winter tourism experiences.”
