Yukon Heritage Fairs

2016 Yukon/Stikine Regional Heritage Fair

Save the date! This year's fair will take place Thursday, May 5, 2016 at the Yukon Transportation Museum in Whitehorse.

The Yukon Stikine Regional Heritage Fair is held at the beginning of May each year. The Heritage Fairs program is a bilingual educational initiative that encourages students to explore an aspect of Canadian heritage in a dynamic and captivating learning environment. Students use the media of their choice to share their learning about Canadian heroes and legends, milestones and achievements - and then proudly present the results of their research at a public exhibition. Volunteer committees involving educators, heritage groups, and community associations work together to organize these enriching events. The Fairs give students a voice to tell their own stories in their own ways. Their enthusiasm, creativity, and passion make the Fairs a highlight of the school year!
