  • Main Street Solstice – celebrate the coming of summer with this full day and evening of fun. Shop the market, enjoy a steak supper, and dance the night away.
  • Winterfest – Learning to love winter and celebrate its fun elements is a difficult thing for Canadians to do sometimes, but the Gull Lake Winterfest makes it easy. Take a spin on the luge run, try your hand at snow-golf, or explore your creative side with snow painting. Starting with a pancake breakfast and ending with fireworks, with a bonfire and hot chocolate and many more activities thrown in for good measure, it’s the perfect way to throw off the winter doldrums.

History Overview:

The Town of Gull Lake is a progressive community, located 56 km SW of SWIFT CURRENT at the junction of Highways 1 and 37 in the heart of oil country.The town site is situated on what was once part of the 76 Ranch, established in 1887. The 76 Ranch House, built in 1888, is one of southwestern Saskatchewan’s oldest existing buildings. The 10,000-acre 76 Ranch at Gull Lake was one of several massive ranches established by Sir John Lister-Kay’s Canadian Agricultural, COAL and Colonization Company.In 1905 the Gull Lake block was sold to American millionaire developers Conrad and Price; they surveyed the town site and put up the lots for sale. Settlers began to pour in, agriculture superseded ranching as the main local industry and between 1906 and 1912 Gull Lake was booming. In 1912, Gull Lake already had a well-established school, many businesses and services, a doctor, a hospital and a newspaper.

A highly developed and prosperous community Gull Lake boasts many local amenities such as a full service campground, swimming pool, mini-golf, modern ice arena and recreational complex, local dining, community ball diamonds, local museum, a historic walking tour of Gull Lake, and the Gull Lake Lyceum Theatre, a fully upgraded digital movie theater.
