Each year, Yukoners celebrate Heritage Day on the third Friday in February.
On February 20th, 2015, Yukoners are encouraged to celebrate this year's theme of "Main Street: at the Heart of the Community".
Hundreds of communities recognize that heritage of downtown is an asset that attracts new residents, invites tourists, and stimulates new investments--the foundation for a vibrant economy and a sustainable future.
We have many 'main streets' in the Yukon: from the downtown of many of our communities, to the Alaska highway, and of course our original 'main streets'--our rivers!
YHMA is planning activities to celebrate this year's Heritage Day: be sure to check our Heritage Day page for more details as they become available!
