COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

Sourdough Sam – Yukon Sourdough Rendezvous

 

    • Every year Yukon Sourdough Rendezvous Society searches far and wide for Yukon’s Primo Male. Once the candidates are found there is a series of competitions. These include: Lip Sync, Bare n’ Boot, Kielbasa Eating, and Dance Fever competitions.  All these lead to the final Sam Knighting. The Sourdough Sam show not only looks for Yukon’s primo male, but all the funds raised at these events go directly to KIDSFEST – ensuring that all kids/family events YSR produce are 100% free of charge to participate in!
    • For the first time in over a decade, in the spirit of inclusivity, there is a Sourdough Samantha contestant! Terence fully sponsored her participation in 2020, and it proved to be a wonderful advancement for the Yukon Sourdough Rendezvous Festival.
