Arts and Culture
Complementing these annual events are the year-round activities of the Watrous and Area Arts Council (WAAC). These activities include the performing arts, showcasing a concert series with performers from
Stars for Saskatchewan Concert series.

WAAC has sponsored an annual dinner theatre for a number of years, partnering with the Saltwater Players to stage performances from a wide range of genres. This production is supported by makeup artists, seamstresses and a set construction crew, drawn from community members.

The Gallery on 3rd, located at 102-3rd Avenue East, has featured exhibits by local artists, artists from the surrounding area, the province and international artists as well as exhibits from Arts on the Move, provided by the Organization of Saskatchewan Arts Councils (OSAC). The Gallery is open Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, 1-4 pm during the months of October to April with extended hours from May to September.

WAAC also sponsors exhibits from local artists at the Watrous Library. These exhibits can be seen Tuesdays and Thursdays, 11:00 am to 8:00 pm and Wednesdays and Saturdays, 11:00 am to 5:00 pm. The Art Shoppe is located inside the Gallery on 3rd and offers visitors the opportunity to purchase artworks from Saskatchewan artists, local and from around the province.

Studio Trail

July 4 & 5th is the 8th annual Spirit of Manitou Artist Studio Trail. Visitors travel to studios in and around the area to view and purchase Saskatchewan created artwork. Textiles, paintings, sculptures, pottery and concrete statues are just samples of what the Artist trail offers its visitors. The two-day event encourages visitors to carry an event passport with them, collect stamps at each studio visited and leave the passport at their final stop so it can be entered into a draw drum for a chance to win a trail-sponsored prize.
