Arts in the Park

Arts in the Park is a summer-long festival in Whitehorse, Yukon celebrating and showcasing performing and visual arts in the community. Every weekday lunch hour and Wednesday evening denizens and visitors, young and old, gather in LePage Park for a free concert.

Arts in the Park is currently administered through Music Yukon. The festival was first launched in 1996 by Steve Slade and Dereen Hildebrand through the Yukon Art Society.

From the North: a travelling show from Yukon, NWT & Nunavut

From the North was a Canada 150 Signature Project that brought together musicians, visual artists, media artists, storytellers, dancers and Dene and Inuit athletes from the territories on a tour of the northern capital cities – Whitehorse, Yellowknife and Iqaluit – followed by stops in Ottawa, Montréal and Vancouver.

The show was made up of three distinct components: an evening gala performance, an afternoon fest and a touring visual arts exhibit. For more information about the project, visit:
