Solstice Saint-Jean Returns to the Heart of Yukon's Capital
Whitehorse, June 19, 2014 - After having been held at Marsh Lake for several years, Solstice Saint-Jean will return this June 24 to Shipyards Park in Whitehorse, Yukon. The Association franco-yukonnaise (AFY) invites all those who enjoy outdoor summer festivals to celebrate the longest day of the year with music.
"This return to Whitehorse should give more people access to French-language culture because Shipyards Park is central and more easily accessible," says Roch Nadon, Arts & Culture Director at the AFY.
Quebec band El Motor will join a rich line-up of Yukon artists to celebrate and get people dancing under the midnight sun.
June 14 Line-up
4:00 to 7:00 pm: outdoor entertainment, games and food for the entire family
8:00 pm to midnight: concert with The Jazz Hands (Gypsy jazz) led by singer Selina Heyligers-Hare, Erin Evangeline Sanderson (folk), Abacus (folk), and El Motor (indie rock).
Dawson community will also gather and celebrate on June 24, from 10:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. at the Pit bar with Soir de Semaine (pop rock) and DJ Florian Boulais (electro).
Solstice Saint-Jean celebrations are made possible thanks to the Government of Canada and the Government of Yukon.
Official voice and leader in the development of the Yukon French-speaking community since 1982, AFY aims to improve the quality of life of Yukon Francophones.
