The Southern Saskatchewan Summer Solstice Festival Inc. (known as Summer Solstice Festival d'été) is a volunteer run non-profit organization. Each year approximately 100 local community volunteers commit more than 2,500 hours to the success of an annual festival.
This festival is very important to the community of Gravelbourg and the surrounding area in exploring various cultures, building camaraderie, improving communication and instilling a sense of civic pride. By working together to achieve a common goal the community gains understanding and insight into future opportunities for community improvement and growth, and a strong appreciation for their neighbour.
Celebrate the spirit of our Southern Saskatchewan landscape through Art, Music, Dance, Literature and Drama providing a living, interactive diary of culture - things of the spirit - to local, provincial and regional audiences.
Our vision is to continually nurture an annual, multicultural, arts and culture festival that presents a diversity of programming and performance genres.
