On Sunday, August 29, visit the museum for WEGO, an epic day in River Landing for all ages. The festival — a partnership between Remai Modern and the Nutrien Children’s Festival of Saskatchewan — features art, music, dance and more. Plus, there is no cost to attend (donations welcome). There is a lot going on at WEGO, so read on to learn how to make the most of your day.
1. Check the schedule, but get ready to explore
Make sure you don’t miss anything you think is a “must-see”. But just like LUGO, our annual art party and fundraiser, some of the magic can be found by just wandering the site. With multiple stages, roaming performers and events happening both outdoors and indoors, there will always be something exciting happening nearby.

2. Make discoveries at River Landing
In addition to performers on our two mainstages, you can find performers around the museum and River Landing. Watch for our roving performers and an improv/stand-up set featuring Danny Knight and Shawn Cuthand from Gordon Tootoosis Nīkānīwin Theatre. Head to the tipi for storytelling and music from Lyndon J. Linklater.
3. Don’t forget to head inside
There is also an exciting program of events happening inside the museum that include artmaking, film, dance parties, exhibitions and more. We are even opening the Level 4 rooftop top balcony for visitors to take in the sights and grab a photo or two.
4. Capture your experience in the photo booth
Capture a great memory of the day with a one-of-a-kind photo booth. Artist Andrei Feheregyhazi’s augmented reality photo booth on Level 3 of the museum is sure to be a festival fan favourite. Check out the video below to get a preview of Fehergyhazi’s animation skills.
