Welcome to Dawson City
Dawson City boasts an eclectic mix of arts, culture, wilderness and history. Placer miners, artists, adventurists, old-timers and new-timers effortlessly share the town - a haven tucked away in the middle of Yukon.
The town of nearly 2,000 people work mainly in the tourism, mining and public service industry; some came to share in Dawson’s unique arts and culture, others for the adventure and pristine beauty, and others to be part of the strong community spirit.
