Arts Festival

The Yukon Riverside Arts Festival takes place in many venues around Dawson City on Discovery Days weekend, particularly the open-air Riverside Park & Gazebo. The festival aims to provide an accessible environment for community members and visitors to interact directly with the arts and explore their creativity. We welcome artists practicing traditional and non-traditional contemporary art from the Yukon and abroad presenting a wide range of events, including exhibitions, workshops, lectures, public art, live music, an art market and more. Most festival events are free of charge.
