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 a parade and a pipe band on the Midnight Dome to a literary tour, fastball tournament and arts festival,  there’s barely enough hours in the day to do and see everything!
