SHAUNAVON, YOU DID IT AGAIN! We had an incredible Shaunavon Boomtown Days thanks to YOU! Let’s take a minute for a BOOMTOWN DAYS RECAP!


On Thursday, The Grand Coteau kicked off the weekend celebrations with one of the biggest crowds yet for their Street Bingo event and gave away hundreds of dollars in cash prizes.


Friday evening, The Excellerators Car Club hosted 85 classic cars, bikes and trucks for The Boomtown Classic Carshow. There were locally made trophies for the top 5 cards, dash plaques for the top 100, giveaways and more!

1st  Jean-Marc Lacasse,  From Fannystelle MB. with a 1955 GMC

2nd  Les Bloye. From Bracken, SK. With a 1966 Ford Bronco

3rd  Keith Hagen, Scotsguard, SK. With a 1932 Chev 5 pass coupe

4th  Jerry & Wendy Breton, Shaunavon SK. 1948 Pontiac Silver Streak

5th Marv Fuller, Shaunavon SK. 1957 Mercury Meteor Rideau 500

$1000 grand prize went to Wayne Gorrill from Ponteix SK


In conjunction with the car show, Shaunavon Hospital & Long term Care hosted a beverage garden with live music by local bands The Marshalls followed by a cabaret starring HWY 13. This and a progressive 50/50 by Dr. Noble Irwin Foundation were held for a fundraiser for Shaunavon Hospital and Long Term Care’s Multi-Sensory Room. Congrats to Nicole Entem for winning the 50/50!


Saturday was packed with fun from morning to night (and even into the wee hours of Sunday morning too!)


The Shaunavon Elks served more than 450 pancake breakfasts at the Elks Hall.


The Market at the Museum was packed with vendors selling hot food, baking, garden produce, jewelry, used books, candles, bath fizzles, donuts, ornaments, antiques & collectables, sparkle tattoos and more.


The Grand Coteau also launched their NEW Escape Room experience – BOOMTOWN OR BUST where you can travel back in time, find clues and solve riddles before the clock runs out, which will continue to run and raise funds for programming at the museum.


The Boomtown Parade was one of the biggest in Boomtown history with more than 40 floats. For the first time, Shaunavon Chamber & The Shaunavon Standard held a “Boomtown Days Memories Contest” for school-aged children with a prize of becoming the honorary Parade Marshal. Congrats to Kixtyn Horn for winning this honor and doing such a great job! There were also cash prizes and ribbons that were awarded to floats this year.

1st was A&B auto

2nd was Kornfeld Electric

3rd was Frosty Treat.


After the parade, the street remained closed to foot traffic so people could explore our local businesses – and that they did! We have had an outpouring of love from our businesses who are so grateful for all the support from everyone. Thank you for shopping local and supporting our community!


Memorial Park was bustling all afternoon as the Shaunavon Elks set up an inflatable play park for kids, with a variety of different bouncy castles and obstacle courses for all ages. 

While families enjoyed the play park, the smells of BBQ and smoked meats wafted through the park. Four competitors prepared for the first annual Ultimate BBQ Showdown – that paired brews, blues + BBQ.


Live music was played by Ross Neilsen (Saskatoon), while local breweries including Black Bridge (Swift Current) and Pile O’ Bones (Regina) poured tasters. The list of competitors included Tyler Justason, Gladys, Andrew Warren and Ryan Clark with judging by celebrity guest & foodie, J.J. Hunter and local business owners/organizers Cory Audette (Ranchhouse Meants) and Garrett Thienes (Harvest Eatery).


After much deliberation, there was a tie for first place between: Ryan Clark’s Ribs + Mac’N’Cheese and Andrew Warren’s Brisket + beans and the bread made that day on his smokers.

The sound of lawnmowers running their practice laps echoed from the East edge of town and by 6pm thousands of excited spectators filled the grounds, ready for The Boomtown Cup lawnmower races. The evening was filled with excitement as racers sped around the track vying for the grand prize. Congratulations to Kye Fahselt for your first Boomtown Cup victory!


Following the races, The Ranchman and HWY 13 performed at the cabaret on the race grounds, celebrating with the community a fun filled weekend and all things Shaunavon.

Finishing off the event, The Shaunavon Chamber partnered up with the Southwest Newcomer Welcome Centre to bring Sunday in the Park a new experience with cultural performances from a variety of dances from Nekaneet, Columbia, Bollywood, Highland, and Tinikling.


The Shaunavon Chamber of Commerce would like to thank The Town of Shaunavon, The Shaunavon EDC and Crescent Point Energy for their support and sponsorship of the event.
