YAC Mainstage

When the Yukon Arts Centre opened its doors in 1992, the Yukon Arts Centre was the largest auditorium in the Canadian North. That legacy continues today, as the Yukon Arts Centre Mainstage enables us to welcome world class performing arts to the Yukon Territory. In addition to being a frequent roadhouse on Canada-wide tours, our Mainstage is also a home-away-from-home for many Yukon youth, and emerging artists. Our Mainstage is a place that our community truly comes together to celebrate Yukon arts and culture.
