The Great Northern Arts Festival (GNAF) is the only pan-northern arts festival in Canada and has been uniting art makers with art lovers for over 30 years. This 10-day event takes place every July, featuring up to 80 artists and 40 performers, a 4000-piece gallery and the opportunity to work alongside local artisans during hands-on workshops. Carving, textiles, sewing, jewelry, performing arts, arctic fashion and northern culture will be on display throughout the entire event.
