Events Description

The Flying Canoë Volant is a unique, nighttime, outdoor winter event.

In the spirit of a great winter city, the Flying Canoë Volant is a creative, 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 our beautiful Mill Creek Ravine and the French Quarter.

Enjoy this evening with live music, hot chocolate, theatre and children’s activities. Come celebrate your inner voyageur with light, music, legends and dance!

Don’t forget to cheer the participants of the flying canoe race held at Edmonton Ski Club. Participants will parade the ski slope in a canoe, cut a log for two and join the throwing of the ax. The four fastest teams will advance to the final to determine the big winners!

Free / Donations Appreciated.
