Music festivals held in the Northwest Territories include Folk on the Rocks, typically held in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories in the middle of July and the Great Northern Arts Festival, which is held annually in Inuvik, Northwest Territories to celebrate the culture of the northern peoples of Canada. The South Slave Friendship Festival is also held later in the summer in Fort Smith, Northwest Territories.
Over its 30 years, Folk on the Rocks has attracted many southern artists ranging from Stan Rogers to Sam Roberts, Buffy St. Marie to Gord Downie and many acts from around the world. Some of the more interesting aspects of the festival are the unique workshops that combine artists from the North with entertainers from the south or overseas. For instance, the Mongolian Tuva group Chirgilchin performed an impromptu set with some traditional Inuit throat-singers, which created some never before heard music.
The Midway Lake Music Festival is held annually among the Teetl’it Gwich’in, one of the First Nations of the Northwest Territories. At Midway Lake, Gwich'in musicians performer jigs, waltzes and square dances, which were imported by fur traders in the 19th century.
The fiddle is a common traditional instrument in the Northwest Territories.

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.
Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
