Fall Harvest Fair To Kick Off In Yellowknife

The 10th annual Fall Harverst Fair is set to take place this Saturday at the Yellowknife River.

The fair was first launched in 2008 by the Yellowknife Community Garden Collective.

Molly Stollmeyer, one of the organizers, says the event is a celebration of food and harvest.

“Bring our communities together around food and having education around harvesting workshops.”

Stollmeyer says, the Harvest Fair is making a big change this year by relocating from N’dilo to Yellowknives Dene First Nations Wiiliideh Site along the Yellowknife River,  just off the Ingraham Trail.

” It’s a great opportunity to bring both N’dilo and Dettah communities around, with Yellowknife residents, to join in the celebration together.”

The fair will have plenty of harvest activities that include a compost demonstration, story-telling and an art workshop.

Stollmeyer says, there is also an effort to move away from traditional vegetables in this years Veggie-Face off, which includes the tastiest pie and most beautiful edible bouquet.

There will also be a free community pot-luck for everyone to enjoy.

The Harvest Fall Fair is co-hosted by the Yellowknives Dene First Nation and Ecology North and will run from 1:00 to 6pm.
