Our Newest Display!
Dignitaries from BHP Billiton, the Saskatoon Zoo Foundation, and the Saskatoon City Hospital Foundation flipped the switch to Light Up the Forest including the beautiful new
Nutcracker Ballet display at a special ceremony prior to The Sponsors and Media Preview Night on Thursday November 17th. Designed and constructed by Master Display
Builder Rick Steffen, the new display is already a favourite of Christmas traditionalists. Watch for this amazing display during your next visit to the Forest.
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 18th season the Forest annually attracts over 70,000 visitors and generates over $200,000 for the two charities to share.
