Banjos and Bison

gord-bisonCombine a true North American safari on the Wild West Side of Prince Albert National Park with your choice of two of Canada’s most popular music festivals! See wild, free ranging bison as well as being inspired in the same way the many musicians and artisans are that find their way to Ness Creek every year!

Take a ride on the Wild West Side of Saskatchewan’s Prince Albert National Park with Sturgeon River Ranch. You will see Canada’s only free ranging herd of plains bison still living within historic range, visit rare fescue grass islands surrounded by lush forests while enjoying beautiful vistas along several rivers, streams, lakes and valleys.

Surround yourself with music at beautiful Ness Creek. The 4 day Ness Creek Music Festival (3rd weekend in July) is world famous for its feel and musical taste, while the 3 day Northern Lights Bluegrass and Old Tyme Music Festival (3rd weekend of August) offers the best acoustic music around and is proceeded by a music camp where you can learn to play or perfect your musical craft under the direction of some of the best in the business. Enjoy VIP treatment at the Festival, including exclusive back-stage access! Whether you are listening to the incredible mainstage performers or jamming at the campfire, you will never forget your time at Ness!
