Celebrating Yukon’s tenacious, frontier spirit
For a week in February, Whitehorse buzzes with energy that brings Yukon’s heritage alive and heralds the coming of spring. Enjoy family-friendly and sporting events by day like the pancake breakfast, axe throwing, dogsledding, flour packing and chainsaw chucking.
At night, the fun gets in full swing with Sourdough Sam competitions, crowning of the festival Queen and roving performances by the world-famous Snow Shoe Shufflers and Rendezvous Can-Can dancers.
With more online events and new guidelines to ensure everyone's safety, this year's festival looks a little different. But as always, we look forward to celebrating the diverse talents, cultures and colourful personalities that Yukoners are known for in this year's Yukon Rendezvous Festival.
