The Harvest Moon Festival is an annual celebration of our amazing neighbourhood. It’s when we gather as neighbours to share food, music, dance, art and conversation. It’s when we celebrate our diversity, deepen connections with fellow community members, and take a moment to relax and have fun together.

Bike Zone (St. John St. & 11th Ave)
Everyone is welcome to join! Bring a bike or borrow one of ours. We are very thankful to have had Parachute donate 10 helmets and the City of Regina donate some bikes that we can utilize this day, and to Western Cycle for donating parts to have these bikes up and running. The plan for these bikes after the festival, is to raffle them off to the people that used them during the bike tour. SGI, Bike Regina and Western Cycle have teamed up to offer a bike safety course with education on bike maintenance and how to keep yourself safe and on the road.
We’ll also be holding 3 bike tours of the neighbourhood, each a different theme, showcasing various assets in the community:
