Long John Jamboree
|Event Date / Time:|
The Long John Jamboree is an incredible party and winter festival to celebrate the arrival of spring in Yellowknife, NWT.
The Jamboree takes place on a frozen Great Slave Lake, the second largest lake in Northwest Territories.
Outdoor games such as pond hockey, ice carving, curling, and lumber jack racing are constantly going down within the Jamboree’s grounds.
Take a helicopter ride over the lake for some stunning photo opportunities!
There are dogsled races and rides for all to enjoy and be sure not to miss the pancake and chilli cook-offs too.
So many fun events and activities but be sure not to miss the Burn On The Bay and the parties within the Snow King Ice Castle. The Burn On The Bay is an annual event in which a large wooden sculpture is built, and then torched in front of the excited crowds under the stars, and usually, the Northern Lights.
