Muskrat Jamboree

Inuvik Muskrat Jamboree 

After a long Arctic winter, the sun shines bright and the people of the Mackenzie Delta come out for several days each Spring between March and April to eat, play, dance and celebrate the coming change in weather during the Muskrat Jamboree. At this four-day festival you can try your hand at ice chiselling, harpoon throwing or jig the night away to great fiddle and guitar music, not to mention the dog races, community feasts, drumming, dancing and much more!

The Muskrat Jamboree, a community celebration that's older than the Town of Inuvik itself, is a must attend for those looking for an authentic glimpse of life in Canada's Western Arctic.

Is there really a Muskrat King and Queen? You bet!

Are there real muskrats at this Jamboree? Of course!
