The weather is expected to be a bit cooler this weekend in Saskatoon, so here are some indoor activities to keep you warm and a couple for those who want to brave the outdoors.
1 – Make it a Huskies weekend
The No. 1 University of Saskatchewan Huskies football team will be playing host to the UBC Thunderbirds on Saturday at 1 p.m. at Griffiths Stadium for the Canada West semifinal. Meanwhile at the Physical Activity Complex, the Huskies men’s and women’s volleyball teams will each be playing a two-game series against the Manitoba Bisons as part of their home opener. The women play at 6 p.m. on Friday and 3 p.m. on Saturday, while the men take the court at 8 p.m. and 5 p.m. respectively. Learn more at huskies.usask.ca .
2 – Don’t miss Van Gogh
There’s just over one week left to see the Imagine Van Gogh Immersive Exhibition at the Thatcher Avenue warehouse beside SaskTel Centre. The experience allows visitors to immerse themselves in the artist’s greatest works as the images have been adapted to project onto any surface. The exhibition is accompanied by music from multiple composers, including Bach and Mozart. The show’s final day is Nov. 21. Tickets can be purchased online for a timed entry at imagine-vangogh.com .
3 – Double your fun at Wanuskewin
Wanuskewin Heritage Park will be hosting an Indigenous Artisan Market on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with products from multiple local vendors. While you’re there, you can also check out the Park’s newest exhibit Fantastic Debris – A Youth Art Project that features 17 varying styles of art created by 17 local youth and inspired by Wanuskewin.

4 – Take and Make a craft
In honour of World Kindness Day, Saskatoon Public Library will be hosting a Take and Make Storytime Craft session on Saturday from 11-11:30 a.m. on Zoom. Participants can pick up their free craft kits from any SPL location. Learn more at saskatoonlibrary.ca .
5 – Touch the Conversation
It’s the final weekend to see Manitoba artist Grace Han’s exhibition Touch the Conversation at the Saskatchewan Craft Council’s gallery (813 Broadway Ave.). The exhibition creates a thoughtful melding of Canadian life and Korean tradition, with guests invited to touch, move and create their own path through a network of ceramic objects. The gallery is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Saturday. Learn more at saskcraftcouncil.org .
