Get set for another exciting weekend in Humboldt with the return of the Humboldt Music and Food Festival on Saturday, June 22 and Sunday, June 23. Lorena of Humboldt Ink is our guide through the lineup of events for the two days.  

“I’d like to invite everyone to join us for the 3rd Annual Humboldt Music and Food Festival happening this weekend, both days starting at 11 am. We will start both days with a Zumba session. Then we’ll have bouncy castles for the kids throughout the days.” 

The stage will feature live performances featuring local talent from Humboldt and artists from various Saskatchewan regions. 

The food will also be varied and amazing, says Lorena. Three food trucks and eight different food vendors will provide favourite flavours for a stunning variety. Alongside there will be five non-food vendors with cultural displays and products.  

“On Sunday, our Family Day, we will have the Humboldt Early Years Family Resource Centre and the Humboldt Regional Newcomers Centre who have prepared a lot of fun activities for all young families.” 

As part of the day, the Festival will crown the first ever Little Miss Humboldt following a Star Search themed presentation. Open to girls aged 4 to 6 from Humboldt and area, the pageant takes place on the stage from 11:00 am to 12:30 pm on Sunday.  

The weekend’s 50/50 draw winner will be announced on Sunday with the proceeds going to Big Brothers Big Sisters Humboldt. There will also be plenty of door prizes to be won thanks to the generosity of the many Festival sponsors.  

Stage performers include an 11-year veteran dance troupe from Regina and a Punjab folkdance troupe performing Bhangra dancing. Local DJ’s and plenty of bands will provide a steady stage of music throughout the event.  

Local dignitaries will be on hand for the Grand opening at 2 pm on Saturday to officially kick off the event and provide a warm Humboldt welcome.
