Yellowknives Dene fall harvest fair returns to Ndilǫ

The Yellowknives Dene First Nation will hold its annual community market and fall harvest fair in Ndilǫ on Saturday.

Starting at 1pm in the Ndilǫ Garden, the fair – organized with the help of Ecology North – will include some of the First Nation’s craft and food vendors, gardening workshops, and a “harvest veggie show-off” in the following categories:

  • Biggest beet
  • Most unique vegetable or fruit
  • Longest carrot
  • Most beautiful bouquet
  • Best-looking pie
  • Best submission from someone aged under 18

The show-off will run until 4pm. Residents are encouraged to bring their entries to celebrate locally harvested food.


Transportation from Dettah to Ndilǫ will be provided from 12:30pm-3pm, as well as a return trip at 5pm.
