About A Celebration of Swans

Yukon's premier bird festival, A Celebration of Swans, brings residents and visitors alike out to great swan viewing areas to welcome spring to the north, arriving on the wings of the Trumpeter Swans.

Throughout April and early May visitors flock to open water making A Celebration of Swans the largest birding event in Yukon. Approximately 10% of Yukoners join in activities or visit Swan Haven each year. Keep an eye out for the Spring Events Calendar flyer with a schedule of events in your mailbox in late March.
