The City of Yorkton is a great place to host a wide range of indoor and outdoor events. We believe that festivals and events are important cultural attractions that can improve the economy and lifestyle of Yorkton and our residents.

Look at our community calendar to learn about upcoming events in Yorkton.

Block parties

Our Block Party Package is the first step to hosting a block party in your area. All you need to do is fill out the application form, have your neighbours sign the petition and submit.

The event organizer must complete the application to temporarily close the street a minimum of two weeks prior to the requested date of the block party.

Special occasion permits

In order to have alcohol on City of Yorkton properties and facilities, an application for a Special Occasion Permit must be completed and submitted with your Facility Rental Application.

Please allow two weeks from your scheduled date for the permit to be processed.

City wide registration nights

City wide registration night is held twice throughout the year:

  • Fall registration night is held on the first Wednesday of September.
  • Spring registration night is held on the last Wednesday in March.

Community organizations use city wide registration nights to gather in-person registrations for their public programs. To find out what community groups Yorkton has to offer, please see our Community Groups and Organizations page.

Funding

Your event may be eligible for full or partial funding. We offer community grants to assist community groups with the funding of culture, recreation and sport projects or events.
