What to do
An annual event, starting on Easter Saturday, and continuing on Easter Monday. This has expanded to a two-day event. It began in the 1930's with a dog team race, snowshoe races, running races, a tug-o-war and target shooting. Auctioning of Easter baskets was and is still a fund raiser. See the schedule of events under Recreation.
The Moravian Church is the only church in town. The Sunday service is held at 4:00 p.m. during summer, but 7:00 p.m. from September to June. There is no ordained minister resident in Makkovik. A group of volunteers take turns holding services.
