Swift Current welcomes visitors with a considerable selection of recreation and leisure activities. We chose five of the most enticing things to see and do there.
1) Windscape Kite Festival
The Windscape Kite Festival is legendary in Swift Current. Look to the sky to see gigantic kites in all shapes and sizes—the designs get more creative every year. There are other activities on site as well, such as kite workshops, balloon sculpting and a variety of entertainers.
2) Frontier Days
Another well-attended event is Frontier Days, which has been held in Swift Current every year since 1938. The festivities include one of the biggest CCA rodeos in Saskatchewan, as well as midway rides, concerts, 4-H competitions and horse and cattle shows.
