More Food Tasting
Over 20 Tasting Booths with menus featuring RFM products. Each Tasting Booth will offer sample sizes of locally made food for 1 ticket each (maximum 2 tickets). There may be multiple items at each Tasting Booth, so come hungry! 20+ Tasting Booths with over 70 different Tastes means you won’t run out of options!
More Liquor Tasting
We want you to have a good time. To ensure that, we ditched the cramped Liquor Tasting area for a larger one, encompassing the stage, 6 Liquor Tasting Booths and plenty of seating. Grab a few Tastes of food and liquor and then kick back to watch the entertainment.
Concert Series, presented by Regina Downtown BID and RAWK Entertainment Group, will feature 2 local Saskatchewan artists at each Market Under the Stars. The stage is located within the Liquor Tasting Area, providing two hours of live music to those seated nearby as well as those mingling on the Plaza. Scheduled for August 25 are Tiny and Scott Richmond.
Yoga Party with Bodhi Tree Yoga
Bring your own yoga mat and join the party in the park! Yoga Party is an upbeat yoga session with a music playlist. Beginners welcome.
#PlayBig games with Regina Downtown BID
Do you follow RFM on Twitter? Great! We’ll be tweeting for contestants to participate in Giant Jenga! After contestants are chosen, they’ll be split into teams of 2. The team that keeps their Jenga tower standing the longest will win Market Under the Stars Taste Tickets. Now, play nice!
Salsa dancing with Regina Salseros
Never tried salsa dancing before? No problem. The Regina Salseros start out with Salsa Lessons and then move into a Dance Party. No experience necessary, just a love of dancing! Salsa dancing will take place on the east side of the Plaza.
