Victorian Christmas Traditions Tour
Government House Is Closed To The Public
Starting Monday, November 30, 2020 Government House will be closed to the public until further notice. All in-person tours will be cancelled. However, virtual tours will be available. This change will help Government House meet the expectations outlined by the province’s Chief Medical Health Officer and help curb the spread of COVID-19 in our community.
You can find more on the Chief Medical Officer’s recommendations about maintaining safe and responsible physical distancing, as well as updates about COVID-19 here: www.saskatchewan.ca/coronavirus
You Are Invited...
You are invited to visit virtually and experience the splendour of the season at Government House from your own home.
Government House is offering a virtual Victorian Christmas Traditions vignette along with a tour of Government House's decorations and some holiday music played on our player piano. Join Amédée & Henriette Forget, their guest Eliza Parker and Mary, their maid as they finalize preparations for their 1905 Christmas celebrations. Hear the stories of how many Christmas traditions (Christmas trees, Christmas crackers, turkey for Christmas dinner, etc.) originated. Go HERE to watch the video.
We will continue to post exhibit information, fun facts, etc. on our Facebook page so make sure to check in during the week.
