Today marks the final day of Saskatchewan Tourism Week with Estevan being shown off as a city full of rich history, vibrant culture, and an abundance of activities for both locals and visitors alike. 

Woodlawn Park is just minutes outside of the city and is a popular destination during the summer months. There are walking trails, kayaking, canoeing, and the Boundary Beach. The Boundary Dam, located within the park, is the home of Saskatchewan's only largemouth bass fishing spot.  

Affinity Place hosts many different events throughout the year. It’s the home of the Estevan Bruins and is used for many events including concerts and banquets.  

The Orpheum Theatre is an iconic piece of Estevan’s history. Once home to silent pictures, they have retained the original acoustics making it an intimate location for musical performances. The theatre also celebrated its 110-year anniversary.  

Arts and Culture in Estevan includes the Souris Valley Theatre which puts on live theatre productions during the summer months. The Estevan Art Gallery and Museum offers various programming and rotating art exhibits throughout the year.  

History is also plentiful in the area with a few different museums in Estevan. The Souris Valley Museum showcases day-to-day life throughout the years of those who live in the Southeast. There are several exhibits available for viewing, and they also offer educational programming. The Southeast Military Museum has a display of different artifacts and also aims to offer education to the public on the history of the military in the Southeast. The Northwest Mounted Police Museum offers information on the NWMP’s arrival to the area during the summer of 1874.  

The annual Energy City Ex, established in 1912, is a summer highlight for Estevan. Bringing with it a rodeo, parade, midway, and cabaret for people far and wide to enjoy.  
"Saskatchewan Tourism Week highlights the wide variety of businesses, experiences, and attractions that make our province an appealing place to visit," Tourism Saskatchewan CEO Jonathan Potts said. 

Tourism adds $2.4 billion to the provincial economy and almost 71,000 Sask. residents are employed in both full and part-time positions. 
As we bid farewell to Tourism Week, let us continue to celebrate and support the countless businesses, destinations, and communities that make Saskatchewan and Estevan a unique place to visit and call home.
