Game Day in Regina

You can tell when it is game day in Regina because people are wearing their favourite team’s colours – green and white. For a real sense of Regina’s community spirit, take in a Saskatchewan Roughriders football game at the new Mosaic Stadium. “Rider Pride” is a phenomenon well worth experiencing.

Pre-game Meal

Regina is home to a number of great restaurants, from casual cafés to fine dining. Avenue Restaurant and Bar opened in Regina’s downtown in June 2018, and has already made the list of best new restaurants in Canada.

Capitol Restaurant & Cocktail Bar is known for its sophisticated cocktail menu, while Victoria’s Tavern is great for lively pre-game snacks and drinks. A day in Regina is not complete without a visit to Wascana Centre. On warm summer days, Bar Willow boasts the best view in the city from its lakeside patio seating. Also with views of Wascana Lake, Skye Café and Bistro focuses on local, organic and seasonal ingredients, some of which are grown onsite.

Game Time!

No matter what time of year, try saying, “Green is the colour” to someone in Saskatchewan. You’ll probably hear “Football is the game” in response. Fans flock to Saskatchewan Roughrider games all over Canada, but there’s nothing quite like sitting in Mosaic Stadium, surrounded by cheering fans wearing green and white jerseys and helmets carved from watermelons. Take home a game day memento with a visit to the Rider Store.
