First Sunrise

2019 Inuvik Sunrise Festival: January 4th-6th

Every December the sun sets for the last time below the horizon, and after nearly 30 days of darkness the return of the sun is celebrated at the annual Inuvik Sunrise Festival. Local food, dance, music and winter activities, including snow carving, sunset yoga and sno-pitch, are all part of the spectacle. On the Saturday night a party on the permafrost continues the festivities with a giant bonfire and an incredible display of fireworks.
