Flying Canoë Volant

Discover The Flying Canoe, a combination of a French-Canadian and First-Nations legends.

Join one of Edmonton's great winter celebrations! The Flying Canoe Volant is a creative, interactive, and cultural event that celebrates local history and everything that is great about a long winter's night. Loosely based on the legend of the Flying Canoe, and on French-Canadian, First Nation, and Métis traditions, the Flying Canoe Volant invites you for a nighttime adventure in Edmonton's French Quarter and along the illuminated trails of the Mill Creek Ravine.

Discover the world class illuminated works of Dylan Toymaker and friends, our many outdoor and indoor stages such as the Flying Canoe Volant Cabaret, la Scène franco, School of Song Cabaret and Café Croissant, Café Bicyclette's Winter Patio featuring local DJ's and both local and national musical talents.

The festival is celebrating its 11th anniversary this year! Stay tuned for additional programming details as they're announced. Hop in the canoe and join us for a unique Edmonton winter adventure.
