Kluane's Annual Dark Sky Festival

September 20 and 21

Location: Kathleen Lake Campground and Day Use Area


Yukon’s only Dark Sky Festival takes place in late September at Mät’àtäna Män (Kathleen Lake), in Kluane National Park and Reserve. This is the fourth annual Northern Nights event created to celebrate the dark Northern sky. As the midnight sun fades away, it becomes the perfect time to gaze up and marvel at the infinite night sky. Join Parks Canada, and the Yukon Astronomical Society this September as we welcome the return of Northern Nights.

Festival goers can attend a variety of events. We will have art and photography workshops, traditional night sky stories, a lakeside concert, and lots of fun and games for the kids.

Camping is available nearby at Kathleen Lake Campground, or you can enjoy a bit of camping luxury and stay in an oTENTik.

Stay tuned for details!
