Junction Arts and Music is excited to celebrate its’ 20th year with you. For 20 years JAM has been providing quality arts and music to the community of Haines Junction.

We’re gathering all our old event posters and stories to showcase. If you have stories, favourite shows or memories please let us know – we’d love your input.
Here are the details:
Dinner – 6pm
The Village Bakery will be catering – Greek themed chicken dinner with tons of sides, salads and dessert all for just $15! Pick up tickets at The Village of Haines Junction Office, or the little Green Apple
Dance – 8pm.
Major Funk is an incredibly danceable 6-person band. They draw a large crowd. They will round off our already jam-packed season with a night of dancing at the St. Elias Centre. They are well known in the Yukon as a dance band and the St. Elias Convention Centre Grand Hall is the perfect venue for a large dance setting. May is the official 20th anniversary of JAM’s inception of providing music and arts to Haines Junction and we’re having a great party and community dinner to celebrate.
Dinner tickets are $15 . Dance tickets are $20 or $10 for seniors and youth available for pre-sale and at the door. A cash bar will be available so minors must be accompanied by an adult.
