Spring has officially sprung in Swift Current! And with the warmer weather comes so many great outdoor activities to enjoy around our Saskatchewan town. Keep these ideas in mind when planning your next local staycation or weekend getaway. 

Watch A Drive-In Movie 

One of the safest ways to go to the movies these days? Hitting the drive-in! The Clearwater Drive-In Theatre in nearby Kyle is one of four remaining theatres of its kind in the province and it serves up both nostalgia and an excellent selection of films including hot new releases. In June, find showings of Wonder Woman 1984, Tom & Jerry, and Raya and the Last Dragon. 


Visit Grotto Gardens 

This family-owned and -operated farm has something for everyone to enjoy. At Grotto Gardens, you can visit the berry orchard, marvel at the perennial gardens, indulge in a freshly home baked treat, shop for souvenirs at the gift shop, visit the adorable animals at the petting zoo (including alpacas and sheep), or hop on the train for a thrilling ride. There’s even goat yoga! 


Shop The Farmers’ Market 

Enjoy the pleasure of fresh, homegrown bounty and support local farmers and artisans by shopping at the Swift Current & District Farmers’ Market. Set to open this season in June and running through until September, the open air market offers a wide variety of vendors selling everything from fruits and vegetables to honey and jams to pastries. You can find the market downtown, on the corner of Chaplin and Central, every Saturday from 9:30am to 2:30pm.
