The festival’s theme is “Bring it to the Heartland." The CFL said the theme “reflects Saskatchewan as the heartbeat of the CFL, and the Canadian prairies as the heartland of Canada.”
There will be multiple events throughout the week in Regina, Saskatoon and other Saskatchewan communities.
“The Saskatchewan Roughriders and our incredible Volunteer Host Committee are so excited to finally be able to host our first Grey Cup and Festival at Mosaic Stadium,” said Roughriders President and CEO and Grey Cup Festival co-chair Craig Reynolds in a news release.

“It’s a shared legacy between our great game, our world-class players and our incredible fans and we couldn’t be more excited to gather in a packed-to-the-brim Mosaic Stadium, to write the 109th chapter of this story together.”
