The Naka Festival will be returning to Yellowknife for the third consecutive year.

Running throughout the month of March, the festival celebrates the aurora borealis and northern culture through a variety of themed events hosted by community organizations and representatives.

Mayor Rebecca Alty says the Naka Festival is a great opportunity to explore and celebrate northern culture and the aurora borealis.

Some of the virtual and in-person events include online Indigenous Storytelling and the Naka Fashion Showcase, a virtual exploration of six NWT fashion artists.
