Arts Up Front 2017 Schedule

Arts Up Front is produced by Arts Underground and takes place July 12-16, 2017 on the Whitehorse Waterfront Wharf.

Arts Up Front is an annual 5-day family arts festival that began in 2014. It is held in mid-July in downtown Whitehorse, beside the mighty Yukon River. It features lively demonstrations by artisans in a variety of mediums, such as metals, clay, beads, antler, paints, and more. Live music is also a key feature of this event.

Kids activities are available for free each day.

Workshops lasting one or two hours allow participants a taste of different methods.

Arts Up Front is excited to partner again with Breakdancing Yukon, who will bring part of its Cypherfest to the wharf, and the Yukon Arts Centre, who will host Kids Kreate.

 

Thank you to our sponsors and partners.
