The Southeast's original festival celebrating food, drink and music.
Savour the Southeast is the premier event of the spring in Southeast Saskatchewan. Alcohol and Food Vendors from across the province travel to Estevan to showcase their best products. From micro distilleries and independent restaurants to major brands and franchises, Savour the Southeast is a common meeting place for individuals to sample and savour the many products available to them.
This event is a true celebration of what our great province produces and has available. Offset with the musical stylings of some of the province's most well known and up-and-coming musicians, Savour is an opportunity for everyone to enjoy an evening of great Saskatchewan-made music, food, and spirits.
The evening ends with a large cabaret. Some of the samplings will still be available during the cabaret so you can keep tasting while you enjoy the toe-tapping, leg-kicking bands!. We hope you are able to join us and savour this truly prairie event!
Vendors are being added daily so keep watching this space to see whose food and drinks you'll be sampling.
