Dust 2 Dawson

The Dust 2 Dawson Motorcycle Ride (Not a Rally!) is an annual event which invites motorcycle enthusiasts from across the world to get together and celebrate in Dawson City.

Since 1992, old friends and new have been getting together over a common bond: motorcycles. The D2D weekend consists of motorcycle games on unpaved streets of Dawson, a poker run in the historic goldfields, and a banquet full of delicious food, crisp Canadian beer, and a whole lot of fun!

Because Dawson City is located at the junction of three iconic highways: the Top of the World/Taylor Highways, the North Klondike Highway and the Dempster Highway, you’ll have plenty of options to do some epic riding.

Atlin Arts & Music Festival 

Two hours south of Whitehorse, in the very northwest corner of British Columbia, an historic gold-rush town swells from from 400 to 2,500 people for just three days of the year, as the picturesque town of Atlin holds in annual arts and music festival. The Yukon News has called the Atlin Arts & Music Festival "A bursting jam buster of sights and sounds."

The musical line up is always diverse and has included Inuit throat singers, jazz, First Nations singers, traditional Quebecois music, bluegrass, zydeco, blues, folk, gospel, world-tech fun, and even heavy metal. Poets, dancers, storytellers, filmmakers and visual artists are a major feature of the weekend's festivities. 

Camping, dancing and a busy beer gardens means that everyone has a great time too!

Dawson City Music Festival

Famously named Canada’s “tiny, perfect music festival” by Vancouver’s Georgia Straight, the Dawson City Music Festival presents three days of wildly diverse music in multiple venues around the tiny town of Dawson City, Yukon, in Canada’s far North. Small but mighty, the Festival has developed a reputation for unparalleled intimacy, uniqueness, production quality, and hospitality. 

Visitors to the Festival enjoy the opportunity to see some of Canada's Musical heroes along side newer and Northern talent in an astonishingly intimate setting and to elaborate the joys of music and community under the midnight sun. Rock, blues, country, world beat, old time, jazz and children's music... The festival has something for everyone!
