Flying Canoë Volant
Live the Legend! Celebrate Winter in Edmonton!
Come celebrate your inner voyageur with light, music, legends and dance!
In the spirit of a great winter city, the Flying Canoë Volant is a creative and interactive cultural event designed to celebrate local history and everything that is great about a long winter’s night.
Inspired by the legend of The Flying Canoe and French Canadian, First Nations and Métis traditions, this event celebrates Edmonton's beautiful Mill Creek Ravine and the newly-established French Quarter.
Following the warm welcome of the Edmonton community, the festival also organizes school programming and The Flying Canoe Volant Races to further spread the joy, spirit and education of the Flying Canoe Volant.
