Doylefest began in September 2014 as a birthday party, music-festival style celebration on Eliza Doyle’s land located outside of Saskatoon, near Asquith, SK. As it has continually grown, she has since developed the birthday celebration into the major fundraiser platform that serves to bring music and art lessons, experiences, residencies, projects and instruments to under-served and remote communities in Saskatchewan.
A new partnership with the Eagle Creek Regional Park is seeing the festival moved to a fully-serviced campground with amenities such as washrooms and showers, a concession stand, disc golf, mini-golf and 9-Hole golf, children’s area, walking trails, electrical and non-electrical camp spots, and space available for your horses if you choose to ride there!
Doylefest features 34 different musical acts, children's performances, face painting, tie dying, old fashioned family games and late night jamming. Tickets are $30 for the day, or $50 for a full weekend and available at the gate or online. The festival runs Friday 6 pm - 12 pm, Saturday 11 am - 12 pm, and Sunday 11 am - 3 pm. Electrical and non-electrical campsites are available to reserve.
