The Partner Foundations

In 1998 the Saskatoon City Hospital Foundation and the Saskatoon Zoo Foundation developed a lasting business relationship to create and operate a unique drive-through Christmas light show through an urban forest, as a fundraising event for both to share.


The first step was to electrify the Forestry Farm Park and build the first set of displays at an initial investment of $750,000. The first season was a huge success and the rest is history. A decision was made to reinvest in a new display every year to keep the show fresh and to attract visitors year after year.

Now in its 20th season the Forest annually attracts over 77,000 visitors and generates over $200,000 for the two charities to share.
