93,440 visitors entered the gates of the BHP Enchanted Forest at the Saskatoon Forestry Farm this past Holiday Season, setting a new attendance record for this special 25th Anniversary. This surpasses the previous high mark of 92,000 set during COVID year 2020/2021. The new record was established even with a lack of snow for almost the entire event.

Key factors that attributed to the large attendance numbers

  • The extension of the drive-thru route and the addition of three new light displays including the impressive BHP Christmas Around the Globe, the crowd-favourite Tunnel of Lights, and the Prairie Portraits
  • The return of two Saskatchewan Blue Cross Light Walks at the beginning of the show in November
  • The absence of snow and above average temperatures made a trip through the Forest a comfortable, enchanting experience during the Holiday Season

The Saskatoon Zoo Foundation and Saskatoon City Hospital Foundation are grateful for the tremendous support of sponsors and visitors and wish everyone a Happy and Healthy New Year.
