19th Annual International Gold Show
The Gold Show originated in 1986 and has since then has become a tradition in Dawson. Every year when the snow starts to melt and the mud appears, Gold Show fever is in the air. This show is not only a wonderful opportunity for people to do business and get ready for the summer, it is also a time when old friends meet up after a long winter and new friendships are developed in a relaxed and social atmosphere.
We are looking forward to your participation for our 2004 show. If you have any ideas for displays or something of interest to the community let us know and lets see if we could accomodate you.
The cost of advertising in our program has decreased. Please take a look at our new prices and help support the Gold Show.
The Gold Show is an excellent opportunity for businesses to bring their products and services to central Yukon.
Along with the industry focus, the show is home to an antique & craft fair. The show is a consumer event attracting a large base of customers and exhibitors from the Yukon, NWT, British Columbia, Alberta, Alaska and several from the lower forty-eight. With each show bringing new and exciting products and ideas, you can guarantee that there is something for everyone!
