After an extended closure due to COVID-19, we are excited to once again welcome guests back to TCU Place! Since March 2020, our team has been hard at work putting plans, safeguards, and signage in place to ensure that it’s possible to hold safe, successful events in our facility. As we begin the process of re-opening, we’re being careful to strictly follow all the safety precautions outlined in the provincial government’s Re-Open Saskatchewan Plan and subsequent public health guidelines to ensure the safety of our patrons, the artists and our staff.

In December, TCU Place achieved GBAC STAR™ accreditation from the Global Biorisk Advisory Council. GBAC STAR is an industry accreditation focused on ensuring a clean, safe, and healthy environment in public and commercial facilities of all sizes. The program outlines best practices, protocols, and procedures to control risk factors associated with infectious disease, including SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19. GBAC STAR™ is the gold standard of prepared facilities and provides third-party validation that facilities have rigorous protocols in place for thorough response to biorisk situations.

Our Sales team is available to assist with Event Bookings at inquiries@tcuplace.com.

Our Box Office is available to assist you by email at clientservices@tcuplace.com or over the phone at 306-975-7799.

TCU Place, Saskatoon’s Arts and Convention Centre is working closely with industry partners to monitor developments relating to COVID-19 and taking direction from the City of Saskatoon, provincial, Canadian and global health authorities.
