Frequently asked questions

  • Where are the Summer Bash events held?

    • The Movie Nights and the Main Festival are held at Fairchild Park (4401 Albulet Drive) which is in the Harbour Landing subdivision in the Southwest of Regina, Saskatchewan.  Parking is available around the event and at the nearby commercial area (Walmart, etc.), however, we have a free shuttle bus system and a free bike valet.

    • The Summer Market on Aug 11 is held in a new location at the South Leisure Centre in Albert Park at 170 Sunset Drive.

    • All events are open to the entire city and beyond!  We welcome all.​

  • What does it cost?

    • Admission is free to all ​at all events.  Some cash/credit needed for 50/50, raffles and food trucks or canteens.  At the Summer Market on Aug 11, that is a great place to purchase all your summer gifts.  

    • Preferred parking does exist at the main Summer Bash event on August 25 for $20 at is only available for about 100 vehicles.  All other services such as the shuttle bus and bike valet are free.

    • We will have our Save-On-Foods Free BBQ for up to 3,000 people.  We have a number of vendors and sponsors that typically hand out free samples and small treats at their booths.  In addition, we will have a wide variety of food trucks that offer great local options for a fee.​

    • There will be cash withdraw machines at the event.

  • Are there washrooms available?

    • At all of our events, Loraas is supplying washrooms and will be placed in visible and convenient locations.  ​Just look for the blue structures.

  • Where do I park?

    • Preferred parking is available at the Harbour Landing or St. Kateri School's parking lots for $20.  There is free parking on the streets and businesses surrounding the events, particularly at Walmart.​

    • We do encourage everyone to utilize our Bike Valet as the preferred method to attend.  We have a station in the centre of the event in which you can "check" your bike and we have volunteers who will look after your bike while you enjoy the festival.  This Free feature sponsored by SGI.

    • We also have a Free shuttle bus that will transport families from around the Harbour Landing area and the Southland Mall.  All shuttle bus location will be marked with signs on August 25th.

    • If you must drive we encourage you to carpool as we are expecting crowds over 10,000 this year.

  • Are you closing any streets this year?

    • No streets will be closed this year.​

  • What should I wear?

    • Dress for the weather.​

    • With hot weather, we recommend a starting point with sunscreen, light clothing, and a hat.  This would have been handy in 2017 with +30 temperatures.

    • With wet weather, we recommend proper footwear like rubber boots and a raincoat.  This would have been necessary for 2018 when we experienced 5 hours of light rain.

    • Who knows what 2019 holds, but we will be ready!

  • Is the event wheelchair accessible?

    • While we have accessible washrooms, shuttle buses, and preferred parking, many of the activities take place on the city athletic fields.  There are many paths around the event but please be ready for many grass areas.​

  • Are the events pet-friendly?

    • Absolutely.  Dogs must be on a leash at all times and cleaned up afterward.

  • What happens if there is extreme weather?

    • In the case of light rain or warm temperatures, our events will continue.  If the weather becomes extreme such as lighting storms or tornado warnings, all events will be canceled and communication on what happens next will be posted on our website and our social media sites.​

  • PLEASE BE RESPECTFUL

    • We are only temporarily using the city spaces and ask that everyone be respectful of the environment and property.  Any damage could prevent us from using the locations again.​

  • Will you have cameras or people taking videos?

    • Yes, we will.  We have notices of the public photos and videos.  If you are not comfortable with being included in these, we ask that you not attend as we can not control the phones and videos and are not responsible for their use.​
