The Adäka Cultural Festival, whose name means ‘coming into the light’ in the Southern Tutchone language, shines a light on the arts and culture of Yukon First Nations. The festival, now in its eighth year, also welcomes indigenous artists from around the world. Together, these artists present, celebrate and collaborate—offering visitors a culturally-rich event that leaves them illuminated.
“I have done a number of art festivals in my time, both as a vendor and as a visitor, and this is by far the best one I've seen in years. ”
“Amazing, beautiful, good for the soul. Such a wonderful representation of our culture!”
“I met so many talented artisans, so friendly and fun! I attended workshops, bought amazing handicraft, and the entertainment was stunning! The Adäka Cultural Festival was truly a peak event of my year!”
