When the sun is shining you have to get out and enjoy life to the fullest! That’s what we do here in Swift Current. That’s why our community calendar is absolutely packed this July with fantastic festivals! Here are just a few reasons to get out here and enjoy a prairie summer!
 

CANADA DAY

July 1 is always a great time to get out and enjoy the sun! Swift Current celebrates Canada Day with a full day of family-friendly festivities and fireworks. Head to a flag raising at Memorial Park at noon and then enjoy concessions, face painting and fun games for the rest of the afternoon! It’s a fantastic opportunity to get out and enjoy the sun with the rest of the Swift Current community.
 

WATERMELON FESTIVAL

Swift Current’s Mennonite Village is once again hosting their beloved Watermelon Festival! Celebrating the harvest of this most refreshing fruit, you can explore the Mennonite way of life while also enjoying delicious, cool and sweet watermelon. The absolute best part of the experience, though, is the kuchen – a traditional Mennonite deep-fried pastry that is served with cold watermelon!
 

GREAT SOUTHWEST SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL

There’s a reason the Bard is so universally beloved – his plays are constantly restaged and updated, and always take on new meaning in new contexts. When great actors take on these plays they breathe new life into them, transforming them into something that remains captivating centuries later.

July 26 to August 15, Swift Current’s Lyric Theatre will present A Midsummer’s Night Dream, inviting you into the fantastical world of Oberon and Titania so you can enjoy a summer reverie!

There are so many ways to enjoy summer here in Swift Current. Book a room at the Home Inn & Suites Swift Current Hotel and our friendly staff will share all their favourite places to get out in the sun!
