New Year's Day Levee

The New Year’s Day Levee is a tradition that began on January 1, 1884 when Lieutenant Governor Edgar Dewdney held the first New Year’s Day Levee in Saskatchewan.  The Levee runs from 1:00 to 4:00 pm every January 1st, and provides an opportunity for the public to exchange New Year’s greetings with the Vice-Regal couple, enjoy light refreshments, and tour the Government House Museum.   This year, you can see the Grey Cup at the Levee.   Also, the Government House feature exhibit, From Far and Wide - Honouring Great Canadians, is available for viewing before the exhibit closes in January.   For more information, please contact the Office of the Lieutenant Governor at 306.787.4070.
