Grab a pen, pull out that day planner, and read on! 

The first month of 2024 has just flown by, and it’s time for another events round-up. Let’s check on what’s going on in Regina this February. 

Brett Kissel 

Country music fans, I’ve got a show for you, and it’s a big one. Brett Kissel will be at the Conexus Arts Centre at 8 p.m. on February 2. Ticket prices start at $49.50 plus tax and service fees. Kissel is a very popular country music artist, so popular that even I know his name, so if you’re a country music fan this is an opportunity you won’t want to miss. Head to conexusartscentre.ca/brett-kissel for more information. 

Globe Cabaret 

From January 24 to February 11, The Globe Theatre is hosting a Cabaret at the Artesian. Advertised as a “trip down musical theatre memory lane,” the show takes songs and inspiration from cabarets such as Moulin Rouge and the Onyx Club while showcasing musical theatre works. Tickets cost roughly $34.78 for a middle row seat, but you can find more information at globetheatrelive.com/shows/the-globe-cabaret-a-musical-theatre-revue. 

Frost Festival 

Frost is coming back to the REAL District again this year from January 26 to February 4. At the door it’ll cost $20 plus tax for one adult and $15 plus tax for one youth or senior to get in for just the day. In February there will be a light display, a petting zoo, a treasure hunt, a magic show, a chili cook-off, a snow maze, and a whole lot more.  

One of the themes of Frost this year is Fairy Tale! The Marketplace is themed around it, as well as several events. I promise, you don’t want to miss this. For more information, head to realdistrict.ca/events/frost. 

Celtic Festival 

The Mid-Winter Celtic Festival will run on February 3 as part of the Frost Festival. The Exchange will be hosting the festival and the cèilidh. The Celtic Festival features Jocelyn Pettit and Ellen Gira, a fiddle and cello duo who earned themselves a “Traditional Album of the Year” nomination at the Canadian Music Awards.  

You can expect their performance to be high energy, feature harmonies, and a lot of dancing. They’ll be offering fiddle and cello workshops, and there will be lots of other performers as part of the festival including the Prairie Gael Irish Dancers, the Flatland Fiddlers, and more. 

Comedy + Magic 

Sometimes you just need a little bit of magic and sometimes you just need a little bit of a laugh. If that’s you, then buckle in, because I’ve got a perfect show for you. Comedy and Magic: Wes Barker and Simon King will be happening at Cloud 9 Live Bar and Grill on February 11 at 8 p.m. 

You’ve probably seen Wes Barker somewhere, whether you realize it or not. He was on America’s Got Talent, he was on Ellen, he has millions of YouTube views, runs a major podcast, and he’s generally a really funny guy.  

You’ve probably seen Simon King, too. He’s been on HBO, the radio, Comedy Central, Just for Laughs, he was even praised by Robin Williams. But, this is an 18+ show at a 19+ venue, so no kids allowed. If you’re interested in this opportunity, you can check on the event page on Facebook or EventBrite. 

Winnipeg Comedy Festival 

For something a little bit different (not really, it’s another festival…), why not check out the Winnipeg Comedy Festival on February 14 at 8 p.m. at the Casino Regina Show Lounge?  

You probably know him from the radio: Matt Falk will be performing. His comedy specials have millions of online views and he even made it to the Montreal Just for Laughs Comedy Festival.  

Hisham Kelati, who also made it to Just for Laughs Montreal, will be there and he’s a JUNO Award Winner for his Comedy Album Tigre King. Maybe you’ll even get some luck of the Irish with comedian Fiona O’Brien from Dublin, who you might have seen on CBC’s Lol or also on the radio on Sirius XM’s She’s So Funny.  

Finally, Ontario born Rob Bebenek will be performing, and he’s known for opening for major comedians like Bob Saget and Steve-O. Tickets start at $32 plus tax. If you need a laugh in your life, here’s an opportunity for several. Go to casinoregina.com/entertainment/winnipeg-comedy-festival-presents-crazy-stupid-love for more information. 

Wascana Winter Festival 

I have yet another February Festival for you! The Wascana Winter Festival is from February 16 to February 19, Family Day weekend. During those four days you can expect sleigh rides, skating, an art gallery, a dance night, and a children’s show. There are still lots of things being announced for the Winter Festival.

Get ready to stomp and clap along to their music that features “blend[ed] anthemic, brightly coloured compositions with yearning, contemplative lyrics.” Tickets start at $55 plus tax and they’ll be performing at the Casino Regina Show Lounge at 8 p.m. on February 16.
