La Ronge Children's Day

By La Ronge Children's Festival
May 15, 2018 - 2:46pm

Welcome to the 14th annual (2018) La Ronge Children’s Day!

Every Canada Day, July 1, families from near and far look forward to having tons of fun at the La Ronge Children’s Day. 

The goal of the event is to provide quality children’s entertainment at no cost to families living in or visiting our community and to encourage a sense of community pride. This goal is achieved by raising funds through granting agencies and local businesses and volunteer effort from community members (yes you!) and community groups. 

This July, the festival will be held in Patterson Park in downtown La Ronge. The day takes place rain or shine!  Meet at the Mel Hegland Uniplex in case of rain.

Volunteer. The Festival is put together and taken down by volunteers.  Contact us if you would like to volunteer, even if it’s only for an hour.

A huge thank you to this year’s sponsors (monetary or in-kind).  Check back often for updated sponsors.

Would you like to see your business or organization’s logo on our webpage and other advertising material?  Close to 1,000 people attend the Festival on July 1, so it’s a great opportunity to show off your business.  Check out our “Sponsorship” page for more information.  Donations from individuals are greatly appreciated as well.  Donating is made simple through the Festival’s on-line donation option.
