Finding things to do in Saskatchewan shouldn’t be hard.
Do Sask is changing the way communities interact through free content that lets people know where they can find fun things to do in Saskatchewan. It encourages people to get involved in meaningful ways around the province and experience adventure close to home.
Saskatchewan’s millennial crowd was missing an information source to connect them with other people that have similar interests, while providing local businesses an opportunity to create and promote their memorable events.
Enhance your relationships by finding exceptional experiences in one place. You can even contribute your ideas on ways to have fun, try new things, connect and spend quality time with others. These are all part of making successful relationships with people around you.
Think of Do Sask as the easiest way to plan fun things to do in Saskatchewan. Once you get out there and start doing you won’t miss Netflix.
Do Sask is basically…
- an info source for the social prairie crowd offering a way to make meaningful relationships with other people that have similar interests.
- providing local businesses and organizations an opportunity to create and share memorable events with our followers.
- offering inspirational blogs, planning tools, and tips to break away for fun things to do in Saskatchewan.
About Do Sask’s Founder
Hi, I’m Amy Rederburg.
I moved back to my hometown of Saskatoon in the summer of 2016 after eight years away in Alberta. I knew the city had grown in population because I was back and forth visiting family over the years, but I was overwhelmed by its change in landscape and lifestyle. So much, in fact, that I began creating mental lists of all the new things to do in Saskatoon to keep track of it all.
Saskatoon’s Boom Left People Behind
I realized that while Saskatchewan was experiencing growth there was a lack of information for people looking to do more than the same old tourist attractions. Plus, you had to search every site’s events page to gather planning information. It was a hassle and seriously time consuming. I saw a need to provide activities to millennials like me to help create better, meaningful social connections.
Create New Ways to Connect
Do Sask started at the beginning of 2017 with a goal to fill the site with ideas of things to do in Saskatchewan before the end of January. Generating a whole province worth of ideas is a lot more work than I anticipated! I want to bring Do Sask to all corners of the province so that members can share their stories and contribute to a collection of ideas.
One day I hope to find a computer developer that will help me automate and populate an events calendar that’s completely free to use. It can be done!
Studio Do Makes Art Approachable
My biggest personal contribution to Do Sask aside from building the idea is Studio Do, an affordable art workshop series that asks group members what projects they want to do and then does them.
Studio Do projects include:
- String Art on Wooden Boards
- Alcohol Ink Ceramic Tile Coasters
- Wine Glass Succulent Terrariums
- Modern Marble Ceramic Skulls
- and more!
I used to get together with a small group in Alberta to make DIY craft items and had been missing it since moving to Saskatoon. Studio Do aims to create a similar experience on a larger scale for a new group of members. Art and crafts projects are quick, fun, and easy to get into.
The spirit of Do Sask is being brave enough to try new things.
