Experience your Passion in Saskatoon
Whether you’re a nature lover, history buff, architectural admirer, art aficionado or foodie, Saskatoon offers fun for everyone. Perhaps that’s why Saskatoon is ranked 18th on the New York Times’ annual 52 Places to Go 2018 — the only Canadian destination to make the list.
For those wanting to experience a little bit of everything the city has to offer, the highly anticipated Remai Modern is a great place to start. Freshly opened in October, Remai Modern may be a new attraction in Saskatoon but it is quickly being billed as Canada’s museum of modern art. The Remai Modern overlooks the scenic South Saskatchewan River and its cantilevered design won Toronto’s Bruce Kuwabara of KPMB, an architectural award prior to construction beginning.
Visitors can peruse the museum’s extensive collection of art including works by The Group of Seven as well as the world’s largest Picasso linocuts, and several of his ceramics. For those who appreciate the culinary arts, the Remai Modern is also home to Shift, the latest restaurant from Oliver & Bonacini — one of Canada’s leading hospitality groups. Serving lunch, dinner, light bites, and weekend brunch, Shift offers a vibrant, contemporary dining experience where you can sample some of the unique flavours of the region, including chickpea fries.
Saskatoon’s culinary adventure continues at the many other foodie hotspots throughout Canada’s ‘bread basket.’ Be sure to check out Ayden Kitchen & Bar, Little Grouse on the Prairie and Sticks & Stones — all part of the Grassroots Restaurant Group, led by Dale MacKay, season one winner of Canada’s Top Chef.
