Whether it's a first birthday, sweet 16, or the second time at 39, The Backyard is Saskatoon's home for awesome birthdays!

It's Always Party Time in our Yard!

The Backyard is the perfect location for any party or celebration, including birthdays (and half birthdays too), bar & bat mitzvahs, graduations & farewells, team windups, stag & stagettes, holiday parties, team building events, corporate get-togethers, retirements, thank you and appreciation nights, welcome home and going away gatherings.

Really it can be any special milestone or no reason at all - you don't necessarily need an excuse to come and have fun at The Backyard.

Teen & Adult Parties
  • What is the max capacity of the venue?
    Our maximum capacity is 300 persons.
  • Can we choose our own caterer?
    Yes! When you book a wedding at The Backyard, we provide the space and you control the rest. There is a private room on the main floor that includes a kitchenette and space for your caterer to set up, however there is not a full kitchen on site. Most caterers will prepare the meal at their facility and then transport the finished product for serving.
  • Can we bring in our own alcohol?
    Yes! You are responsible for obtaining your own liquor permit and supplying your own alcohol. We will supply professional bartenders!
  • Does The Backyard provide bartenders?
    Yes! In our bartending package, we will supply professional bartenders and bussers to run the bar and take car of the clean up for anything beverage related.
  • Do you charge corkage or gratuities?
    We do not charge a gratuity. If alcohol is being served, we do have a "Bartending Package" A.K.A Corkage. Included in this package are professional bartenders, bussers, mixes, garnishes, disposable cups, and ice. For more information, please submit an inquiry and our Event coordinator will be in touch.
  • Do I get access to both the indoor and outdoor space with my rental?
    Yes! The entire Backyard venue, including the indoor and outdoor space, are completely available to you during your booking.
  • Can we book extra time for decorating?
    Yes! Regular bookings include day of access to the venue from 8:00am to 2:00am the next morning. Should you wish to secure the venue prior to 8:00am on the day of your wedding, we do offer early access from 6:00pm to 10:00pm the day before for an additional charge, however this option can only be booked within six months of your event date.
  • Is there a set time that the reception has to end?
    Although we wish the party never had to end, the bar is to close at 12:30 am and the dance/DJ must conclude at 1:00 am to ensure that takedown is completed and everyone is out by 2:00 am.
  • Do all decorations have to be taken down following the reception?
    We will set up the items provided by the venue (e.g.: chairs, tables, archway). You are responsible for putting away all tables and chairs, removing all additional decorations and vacating the venue by 2:00am.
  • Are dogs allowed?
    We love dogs, and they are welcome to attend for those who wish to celebrate alongside their canine companion. That said, for this experience we find it is best to leave the pups at home so you can be fully present. The decision is ultimately up to you!

"Hosted my sons' 5th birthday here and it was a breeze. They take care of EVVERRYTHING! As soon as we walked in the door, they knew my son. There was a young guy who organized the whole party, he explained to the kids the rules, wouldn't let me clean anything and made sure my son felt special. 

We will do more birthdays here!"
