Nightlife in Yellowknife is particularly renowned with some of the best and most eclectic bars in the country.

Folk on the Rocks

Don't Miss "Folk on the Rocks"

Visiting in July? Don't miss "Folk on the Rocks" annual music festival on Long Lake, where musicians from Northern Canada and the world come together to share their art. Take it all in shopping Northern creative works, enjoying traditional and international cuisine, and joining the activities in the artisan tent. It's a jam to remember under the Canadian sun.
