Arts, Culture and Recreation
There are cultural events and festivals planned throughout the NWT year round. A lot of the festivals taking place throughout the Northern communities occur in the spring as residents start to thaw and shake winter’s frost from their bones.
There are too many to list but there are a few highlights:
- Snowking Castle on the shores of Great Slave Lake (www.snowking.ca)
- Folk on the Rocks has been running since 1980 (www.folkontherocks.com)
- The Great Northern Arts Festival runs over two weeks in Inuvik (www.gnaf.org)
