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.

Make sure you head to the Edmonton Ski Club on March 4 & 5 for the iconic Flying Canoe Volant Races!

The festival is celebrating it's 10th anniversary this year! Stay tuned for additional programming details as they're announced.
