Pick 10: Fall Date Ideas for Every Couple in Saskatoon

Saskatoon autumn date ideas

I’m lucky to have experienced many autumn things in Saskatoon to build this definitive guide to fall date ideas in the city.

So far, I’ve played puzzles blindfolded with horses, transformed into a human soccer ball and got attacked by children, picked a pumpkin from the local patch, and went indoor mini golfing. But there are still plenty of things I haven’t done that made their way into this post.

A LOCAL GUIDE TO FALL DATE IDEAS IN SASKATOON

Treat your date to a plate of gourmet donuts, plan a cozy bonfire picnic in the park, tailgate at a local football game, or courageously tackle a high ropes course. There is a world of fall fun listed below.

Get a bird’s eye view of the changing leaves.

Take a road trip to the zip-line and high ropes course at Blue Mountain Adventure Park, or get even higher in a hot air balloon ride with Sundance Balloons.

Plan a farmers’ market grocery haul and make a local producer smile.

Taken at the Saskatoon Farm near Calgary.

Set a reasonable spending limit and go on a shopping spree at the Saskatoon Farmers’ Market – just in time for a harvest feast.

Slip on a pair of safety socks and become a human soccer ball.

After trying to fend off children (and my date) for close to 10 minutes, I was out of breath and sweating through my clothes. Plan to spend about 30 minutes total at the park – believe me, it’s more than enough time!

Choose a topic you both love and browse for the best reads at McNally Robinson Booksellers.

Go on a mini coffee and donut crawl.

Sample the latest gourmet flavours at the newly opened Pals Donuts (Revolve Cafe) and Darkside Donuts.

Play an escape game with a live, 1-tonne animal as your key.

Equine Assisted Couples Communication Course
The owners of Lift Farm invited us out for a night.

Put your communication skills to the test with a rescue horse at the helm at Lift Farm EAL. On date nights at Lift, you’ll work through different obstacles to see if you can complete them together.

Tailgate with thousands of friends from town.

Pack your warmest toque, stadium cushion, and cooler and head for the Huskies game.

Pumpkin picking has never been more fun!

Black Fox Distillery Pumpkin Festival 2017

Pick your favourite pumpkin to decorate and carve together from the folks at Black Fox Farm.

Hike along the Meewasin Valley at Beaver Creek followed by a bonfire picnic at a local park.

Slow clap your way into their heart with a round of indoor mini golf at Market Mall on a rainy autumn day.

Choose a rural Saskatchewan town you haven’t visited and make a day trip out of it.

Drive the country back roads and plan your own photo scavenger hunt to capture the adventure. (Stuck on ideas? Try What to Order at Saskatchewan’s Favourite Hidden Gem Bakeries or How to spend 48 hours in Moose Jaw Saskatchewan.)

Give your date a classic autumn experience with a day of apple picking at Petrofka Orchard. (Closes for the season on October 15th.)

Your Guide to Halloween Events in Saskatoon 2018

Saskatoon Halloween 2018

Oh, you thought Halloween was only one day a year? Mwahahaha! Between live shows, haunted houses, pub parties, and other special events – you’ll need to up your costume game to cover at least three days worth of festivities.

Get spooked to the bone inside a good old fashioned haunted house; watch magicians, musicians, and pole dancers; send the kiddies for G-rated boos; and party with cheerleaders on a cross-town pub crawl. It would only be possible to experience everything if you spread it out over a couple of weeks. So this list is coming at you early to give you time to make up your mind.

If you’re craving a little more than Netflix and Chills this Halloween, Saskatoon has a range of parties and activities for everyone… living and dead. Okay, maybe not dead. Just don’t be surprised if they show up uninvited!

Find details about these things to do this Halloween in Saskatoon (October 26 to 31, 2018) below:

Things to do in Saskatoon This Weekend

October 12 to 14, 2018 Things to do in Saskatoon

The weekend is upon us, so beer lovers take note: Oktoberfest and Sask Craft Beer Festival are happening back-to-back Friday and Saturday. Not that into barley? Rather than spending money on things, learn to make treasured gifts with leather tooling and mixed media workshops. Or, take bae and their two left feet to dance like no one is watching. Whatever you’re into, you’ll find something different to try.
