The Prince Albert Winter Festival Society is the biggest Winter Festival in Western Canada. Established in 1964, it hosts the traditional King Trapper Competition, Sled Dog Championship Races, Beerd Derby and a variety of family friendly events. There are also musical shows featuring local northern Saskatchewan talent. These run through the 17 days including the Country North Show, Voices of the North and the new, but wildly popular, Rock Show Experience which won a Best Concert PANow BOB award in 2020. The Festival was also voted Best Event/Festival.
In 2017, the Society won the Samuel Mcleod Business Award for Tourism.
