The Festivals of Saskatchewan Raffle

Buy Your Tickets Here

We are excited to announce an exciting new opportunity for you to win some serious cash this 2016 summer season! As part of a province-wide partnership with a large group of Saskatchewan arts and culture festivals, we are selling tickets for this exciting summer-long raffle. As part of the great Saskatchewan tradition of 50/50 lotteries one lucky single cash prize winner will walk away with ½ of the total prize pot. While this innovative new raffle will allow you to contribute to raising fund for festivals all over the province, we would sure like you to purchase your ticket from us to ensure that the funds raised from that ticket go directly to our organization.
Draw Date: October 5, 2016.

The combined attendance at participating festivals is expected to be over a quarter of a million people, so the pot will continue to grow all summer long for one big lucky winner in this first ever province wide festivals raffle.
