Come celebrate Yukon’s energetic festival culture

Discover Yukon’s authentic, joyful spirit by connecting with locals at our festivals. Come join the fun at world-class music, art and cultural festivals that happen year-round.

Wintertime revelry

February is the ‘hottest’ time of year in Whitehorse – for festivals that is! Dance the night away at Frostbite Music Festival – Canada’s premier winter music festival – or try northern traditions like can-can dancing and chainsaw chucking at the Yukon Sourdough Rendezvous. Watch the legendary Yukon Quest International Sled Dog Race, or attend the Available Light Film Festival.

Summertime celebrations

Festival energy is at a fever pitch in summer, too. Discover Yukon First Nations culture at the Adäka Cultural Festival in Whitehorse. Music lovers venture to the Klondike for the famous Dawson City Music Festival, as well as Discovery Day celebrations and the Riverside Arts Festival. Explore a variety of sporting events and smaller festivals throughout the territory.

    "Each spring Sandhill Cranes fly back to their nesting grounds in the northern regions of North America and north eastern Siberia. They use the thermals over Faro as their elevator to gain altitude. In their migration flights, the Sandhill Crane will fly in long lines or in Vs. They make a loud garoo-oo-a-a-a type of call when they fly which can be heard more than 1.6 km (1 mile) away. This means it is likely you will hear them long before you actual see them in flight.

You will also witness nature’s most amazing sight, the Fannin sheep coming out with their young ones. Fannin sheep can only be found around Faro, Yukon Territory.

You can witness all this and enjoy a wonderful weekend full of fun, activities, free barbeques, presentations, wildlife viewing and more by participating in our Annual Crane and Sheep Festival scheduled from May 2-4, 2014. "
