Discovery Days Festival

August 11 - August 14

Discovery Day Parade -  VIC Staff - Excelsior

A weekend of special events celebrating Dawson City including exhibitions, arts & crafts fair, a parade and much more!

In August of 1896,¬†George Carmack, Dawson Charlie and Skookum Jim discovered gold in what is now called Bonanza¬†Creek. Soon after came one of the world’s greatest gold rush stampeded; nearly 100,000 people attempting to strike it rich in the Klondike gold fields.

Today, Dawson City celebrates our rich and unique history with a weekend festival known as Discovery Days. From family-friendly events such as crafts, face painting and a sampling of the Diamond Tooth Gerties’ Can Can dancers show, to writing competitions, walking tours, an arts festival and a golf tournament, there’s barely enough hours in the day to do and see everything!
