Canada Day Celebrations
Celebrate Canada Day Dawson City style with a day packed full of fun community events! This year we have gone virtual, but you will still feel the spirit if you are spending the day with us!
At 11:00am catch the parade from your hotel window or porch as the parade snakes a route through town trying to pass as many homes/businesses as possible. Then, head out on a walk and see who has the best Canadiana themed yard decorations. With virtual events including a live streamed ceremony, online cake decorating competition and a virtual run this will still be a Canada Day to celebrate and remember!
