Congratulations to Western Canada’s SiriusXM Music Town!
The town of Estevan knows how to rally. After a difficult few years, local small businesses and music fans came together to drive thousands of votes and rally points to win SiriusXM Music Town in Western Canada. This fall, Estevan will welcome Dallas Smith for an unforgettable concert and celebration of hometown pride.
Located in southeastern Saskatchewan close to the Souris River, Estevan is known as the sunshine capital of Canada – but residents would love to host a concert to bring even more brightness to their home. Estevan enjoys an average of 3,536 hours of sunshine and the highest number of hours each year of clear blue skies, but this unusually sunny town has unfortunately experienced dark times recently with the downturn in the Canadian oil industry.

Now, plant closures and job losses have hit this small community hard. After supplying the province and its neighbours with energy for years, the town is facing a difficult future.
