History and General Information
The venue for the very first Aqpik Jam was at the newly built Kuujjuaq Forum with its arena and gymnasium. The festival was hosted at the Kuujjuaq Forum until 2002 when the venue was moved to the newly built Katittavik Town Hall and Cultural Centre with its 500-seat capacity, better sound acoustics, and improved lighting and audio equipment.
The Aqpik Jam Music Festival is held during the second week of August to coincide with the ripening and harvesting of the wild berry called aqpik. The festival lasts four days with a full-slate of performances every evening from 7:30 p.m. to early in the morning.
