The Yorkton Arts Council, in consultation with the Saskatchewan Health Authority and the Government of Saskatchewan’s Business Response Team, has cancelled Sunflower 2020.

We thank our past exhibitors and those who were planning to participating in Sunflower 2020.  We look forward to the time when gatherings of large groups will resume and we can once again host Sunflower the weekend after Labour Day.

All exhibitors will be refunded their registration fees in full.

We appreciate all the time and talent that our dedicated Sunflower Volunteers have contributed for the past 40 years. Thank you!

Our focus during the Covid-19 pandemic is to keep everyone safe and healthy.

With all city facilities closed to the public, the Community pARTners Gallery located in the Yorkton Public Library is closed until further notice, 

as is the Arts Council office in the Godfrey Dean Cultural Centre.

The Yorkton Arts Council is receiving email and checking voicemail during this time.

Recognition of donors to the Anne Portnuff Theatre revitalization project has been completed.

A large plaque at the theatre  entrance  recognizes the major donors and the groups which assisted with the project. In addition, small plaques have been attached to seats in the theatre marking those who "purchased" a seat in the refurbishing program.

The signage is the final step of the project that began with a year of planning, two years of fundraising, and then the installation of new seat and lighting and sound upgrades.

The Anne Portnuff Theatre at the Yorkton Regional High School is a much-used facility with dance groups, Stars for Saskatchewan concerts and the Community Band among regular users. After 50 years of use and seats wearing out, it became obvious upgrades were needed.
