Get up here and join us for some of the best festivals and events in the North. Here are five festivals and events to enjoy under the Midnight Sun.
On June 5, 1984 the Government of Canada recognized the Inuvialuit Settlement Region as the westernmost Inuit land-claims area in Canada. Today, the Inuvialuit people celebrate with drum dancing, music, and plenty of good eats! Celebrated annually on June 5.
Experience the Arctic through the lens of the North’s most talented photographers at the NWT’s northernmost photography festival. Featuring contests, photographer workshops and full gallery at the Midnight Sun Complex. Held annually.
The Arctic Market runs every Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Jim Koe Park, rain or shine (or snow…). If it’s grown, made, carved, sewn, cooked, baked or created, you’ll find it here! Runs Saturdays during the summer.
Indigenous Peoples Day, also known as Aboriginal Day, is when Canadians recognize and celebrate the cultures and contributions of the First Nations, Inuit and Métis Indigenous peoples. In Inuvik, people from all cultures celebrate with traditional drumming, dancing and food. Celebrated annually on June 21.
It’s the globe’s finest celebration of Arctic arts, featuring 10-days of polar fashion, music, dancing, games and artistic creation. The Great Northern Arts Festival showcases artists and performers from across the North. Held annually in the middle of July.
This year Inuvik turns 60! The three days of events include an outdoor old-time dance, pancake breakfast, cultural and community games, music, food, craft booths, an adult 1950/60's themed dance, a community fish-fry and more! Celebrated on July 20, 2018.
