A four-day carnival celebrating spring’s impending arrival. Events include dog-team racing, snowmobile racing, a talent show, northern games and competitions, the Mad Trapper’s old time dance, and activities for children. Keep an eye out for the Muffaloose mascot, who just might make an appearance.
The annual Dark Sky Festival is a celebration of the return of dark skies to our northern latitude (60°N) and is hosted in the world's largest Dark Sky Preserve, Wood Buffalo National Park.
At the Dark Sky Festival we do not just look at stars, we try to answer your questions about science through fun and interactive activities. For kids there is the Circus of Science and the Science Academy events.
