What’s the Buzz? Yukon Heritage Day

- Advertisement -spot_img

Today, February 26, is the Yukon Heritage Day to celebrate the history and culture of the smallest of Canadian territory – Yukon. Yukon Heritage Day falls on the Friday before the last Sunday in February and is similar to February holidays celebrated in many other provinces of Canada such as Family Day.

Yukon Heritage Day brings attention to this small and unique territory in north-western Canada, an area known for rugged mountains and high plateaus. The day is designed to coincide with the Yukon Sourdough Rendezvous that represented the sourdough which was a staple for many who came to Yukon during the Klondike Gold Rush of 1898 when over 100,000 gold prospectors descended in the region, allowing them to make bread without yeast or baking soda.

However this year, the organizers have decided to let go of the sourdough reference and stick with Yukon Rendezvous. A day to remember and celebrate this territory which remains one of the sparsely populated and with unspoiled wilderness.

This year the Yukon Rendezvous is running from February 12 to 28 in the capital Whitehorse.
