Sourdough Sam

Every year Yukon Sourdough Yukon Society searches far and wide for Yukon's Primo Male. Once the candidates are found there is a series of competitions each year.  In the past these have included Lip Sync, Bare n' Boot, Kielbasa Eating, and Dance Fever competitions.  All of these leading 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 that YSR produce are 100% free of charge to participate in!
