After a two-year hiatus, Sidewalk Days is back in Moose Jaw. Starting on Thursday through Saturday the downtown streets of the city will be closed off for the festivities.  

Tourism Moose Jaw Executive Director, Jacki L'Hereaux Mason says it’s going to be a fun-filled three days.  

“We are really excited to come back,” says L'Hereaux Mason. “We weren’t really sure what we would get for vendors and performers with having such a big break. We’re going to have pretty close to 160-170 vendors lining the streets of Moose Jaw for all three days.” 

Besides all the food, fun, and shopping, there will be a ton of entertainment at this year's Sidewalk Days. 

“We have two stages. We have the Moose Jaw Ford Stage at Grant Hall and the Vintage Vinyl stage in front of John’s Music.” 

In addition, four local bands will duke it out in the first-ever, Water Vision Pool and Spa’s Battle of the Bands on the Moose Jaw Ford Stage on Thursday from 1-4 p.m. 

“We’ve done the Singer/Songwriter Showcase for a few years, decided to switch it up this year, and have four great local bands battling it out to see who’s going to be winner takes all this year.” 

Below is the full line-up of entertainment for Sidewalk Days:

L'Hereaux Mason wanted to highlight the expansion to the Moose Jaw Kinsmen Children’s Village. 

“We’re going to have seven large bouncy castles including a couple of obstacle courses, and the ultimate sports arena that we’ve brought in that’s very popular, and that’s all located in front of Boh’s Cycle and Sporting Goods.” 

The Moose Jaw Kinsmen Children’s Village is completely free to use by all.  

While you are down at Sidewalk Days enjoying the fun, L'Hereaux Mason adds that there will be a number of food vendors to enjoy some tasty treats.  

“We have 32 food vendors this year so we’re really stoked and we have a great variety lots of BBQ and smoked food, hot dogs, and hamburgers, but you’re going to see some interesting things like those new Korean hot dogs' people are talking about. Of course, elephant ears, mini donuts, lemonade, and all the favourites.” 

As well, the Military will be out and about this year down by the Tunnels of Moose Jaw, as they will be launching the newest tunnel Bunker 24 on July 8, at 2:00 p.m. Also, 15 Wing Moose Jaw will be doing a fly-by over the event.  

Residents are reminded that Main Street will be closed from just after Caribou Street all the way down to Manitoba Street beginning Wednesday at 6 p.m. Through roads will be Caribou, Athabasca, and Fairford throughout the event.
