Catch the hottest events in Regina for the upcoming month

With the return of students to campus, life feels like it’s in full swing in Regina. People are looking for things to do for fun. There’s plenty to do for newcomers to the city, and lots of favourites for our long-time residents, too! Here are some of the events happening in Regina for the rest of September and October.

Queen City Ribfest

From September 23 to 25, head down to City Square Plaza and Victoria Park for the Queen City Ribfest. Get your taste of pork ribs, beef ribs, brisket, pulled pork, chicken and more! The event supports Carmichael Outreach, an organization in Regina who aims to help those in our community who are experiencing poverty. The event will also feature a variety of talented artists performing throughout the weekend. 

September LARP!

Hey Regina nerds! Have you ever wanted to participate in Live Action Role Play (LARP) before? Well, now you can! On September 24, Quest for Champions is holding a drop-in night that you can attend for a small fee. Taking place at Regina’s Battle Arena, you can bring your weapons (or borrow some of theirs) and enjoy a night of fun. 

The Fretless

On September 28, folk music lovers can head over to Darke Hall on College Ave to see the Fretless perform. The Fretless are a string quartet that has won several Canadian Folk Music Awards along with a JUNO Award. If you love string music and folk music, you won’t want to miss this. 

Come From Away

Calling all theatre lovers! From October 12 to 16, the hit musical Come From Away will be at the Conexus Arts Center. Come From Away is about the 38 planes and 7000 passengers that landed in Gander, Newfoundland during 9/11. It’s a story of kindness and triumph. It was nominated for Best Musical at the Tony’s in 2017. Come From Away is an incredible musical and I highly recommend it if you have time to go see it. 

Wannabe – A Tribute to the Spice Girls

Tell me what you want, what you really, really want. Is it the Spice Girls? If it is, then I have exactly what you really, really want! On October 14 at the Casino Regina, the Spice Girls tribute act, Wannabe, will be performing. They’ve been performing for over a decade across North America, dazzling audiences with the energy of one of history’s best girl groups. 

A Killer Party: Murder at the CP Rail Hotel

A good murder mystery around Halloween is always a fun time, and you don’t have to fear missing out because the Globe Theatre is hosting A Killer Party on October 29 at the Hotel Sask. Taking place at the CP Rail Hotel in the 1920s, A Killer Party is an immersive murder mystery where you can eat, drink, and uncover a killer. You can watch it all unfold or participate in trying to figure out who did it, where, and how. 

Operation City Quest

Do you like puzzle games, escape rooms, or object-finding games? Then here’s the activity for you. Throughout September and October, you, your friends, and family can complete a scavenger hunt challenge throughout Regina. Find all the objects within the 13 categories, earn points when you find them, and try to be number 1. It’s a fun and unique way to tour the city and learn more about it while engaging your competitive side. Team up with up to six people and spend two hours searching for clues and the items you need. Happy hunting!
