    Either is fine, but Sonnabend is more dialectal (from the south), whereas Samstag is taught in the standard Hochdeutsch.

    Funny, I would say "Sonnabend" is more a Northern word. I may not be correct here, but I am from the South and always use Samstag. Besides, I would say that "Samstag" is by far the more frequently used form.
