Discovery Days Festival

August 16, 2018 - August 20, 2018

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!
