About Huron Carole
The show is a state-of-the-art, multi-media magical journey featuring enchanting songs of Christmas with a shimmering light of faith and plenty of Tom Foolery. At the heart of this classic story is how Christmas literally saved Tom’s life and helped provide hope for millions of needy Canadians for almost three decades. It’s a story of mythical characters in modern times that connect us with the spirit of giving: a cat, a donkey, a little girl, and an old Indian storyteller will share a secret… having nothing is everything when you have nothing.
Huron Carole benefits the Saskatoon Food Bank & Learning Centre. Join us for a beautiful holiday meal, live entertainment and a chance to support our community.
About Tom Jackson
Born to an English father and Cree mother, Jackson carries the legacy of his parents’ selfless manner of keeping the door open for anyone who might need a meal or a conversation. While living on the streets of Winnipeg, his personal search for identity led to bonds with those outcast and marginalized. His voice became his way off the streets – figuratively and literally – and in to radio stations, television studios, film sets and theatres.
For a younger generation of TV viewers, Tom is recognizable from his portrayal of Billy Twofeathers in Shining Time Station, and his guest role in Star Trek The Next Generation. Yet it’s his 6 years of playing Chief Peter Kenidi in CBC’s North of 60 that still draws comments, letters, emails and many hugs from longtime fans. The series was an inspired view in to the lives of a First Nation community and Tom inadvertently became a role model because of it.
"We'll be tapping a new Firkin provided compliments of Prairie Sun Breweries and every dollar from every pint will be donated to benefit the Saskatoon Food Bank & Learning Centre and its important mission to ensure that all residents have access to safe, affordable and nutritious food. Join us for a night of great live music and lots of delicious suds and support this worthy cause by just enjoying yourself!"

18 Wheels will be at the Santa Claus Parade collecting non-perishables for the Saskatoon Food Bank & Learning Centre. Look for their festive holiday truck!
The Santa Claus parade is a century old tradition in Canada with the first parade having been held in 1905. Santa Clause parades in Canada signal the start of winter fun and festive celebrations. Although many Santa Claus parades are held in rural communities outside of the major cities, children find a trip to a big city parade a huge treat.
