About the Festival
Yukon Rendezvous is an annual winter event held each February in Whitehorse. The festival got its start in 1945 as Yukon Carnival Week. Organized by the All Union Committee, the event was packed with sporting activities and entertainment such as snowshoe races, ski races, skating, dog team derby, snowshoe ski ball games, hockey, and more. In 1964, the Yukon Sourdough Rendezvous Society was officially registered and continues to host the annual festival to date.
Yukon Rendezvous Festival is a family-friendly event that offers lots of entertainment and fun wintery activities. The festival features snow sculptures, cultural crafts, contests, kids’ zone, axe throwing, dog pulls, music, and so much more. In 2023, the seventeen-day Yukon Rendezvous will take place from Friday, February 10 to Sunday, February 26.
