Dance to Dawson!

As I was back in Whitehorse for the summer, I thought the annual Dawson City Music Festival would be a fun event to attend. The North Klondike Highway to Dawson City passes through some spectacular scenery of which the most photographed is Five Finger Rapids on the Yukon River.

The heart of the world-famous Klondike Gold Rush, Dawson City on the banks of the Yukon River is a blast from the past. One of its most famous landmarks is Diamond Tooth Gerties, Canada’s oldest gambling hall, complete with can-can dancers and a singing master of ceremonies.

I loved my cozy wall tent at Whitehouse Cabins. It was just on the edge of town which was great as it was quiet but just a short walk to the Music Festival site. When I first booked it online I thought it was pricy for a wall tent with an outhouse for a toilet but ended up loving it so much I stayed an extra night. I especially loved having my coffee in the morning on the little patio.

I had tons of fun dancing at the Music Festival. The performers were very eclectic with something for everyone. Food was a little lacking at the festival though with just 3 vendors but as the city itself has many restaurants it was no biggie! The Chinese food at The Midnight Sun Hotel’s restaurant Wok On In was surprisingly good!

On the drive home, I saw the most lovely rainbow and at times it was even a double rainbow, a great end to a great trip!
