43rd ANNUAL DAWSON CITY MUSIC FESTIVAL

SEPTEMBER 10-12, 2021!

There’s a familiar saying in Dawson City, often said at the beginning of the busy spring and summer season: “see you in September”! Well, we certainly hope to see you! The Yukon’s longest-running music festival, which typically takes place in July, is taking place September 10th-12th, 2021.

The Dawson City Music Festival Association presents a weekend of concerts at the exquisite Palace Grand Theatre and the scenic riverfront Gazebo. We invite you to spend the weekend listening to and enjoying everything from old-time country and western to lo-fi ambient sounds.
