The population of Yukon was higher in 1898 than it is now. Dawson City alone reached a population of over 30,000 at the height of the Klondike gold Rush.
The Thaw di Gras is Dawson City’s very own spring carnival. Held in mid-March, locals shake off the dark days of winter and come out to compete in events such as a chainsaw toss and a tug of war, a one-dog pull and even a tea boiling contest.
Join in and help us welcome in the spring.
Yukon is world renowned as a legendary land imbued with gold rush history, frontier spirit and first nation culture. Listen to what fellow media travellers have to say about Yukon.
