The Yukon Riverside Arts Festival takes place in many venues around Dawson City on Discovery Days weekend, including the open-air Riverside Park & Gazebo. The festival aims to provide an accessible environment for community members and visitors to interact directly with the arts and explore their creativity. We welcome artists practicing traditional and non-traditional contemporary art from the Yukon and abroad, who presents a wide range of events, including exhibitions, workshops, lectures, public art, live music, an art market and more. Many festival events are free of charge.
During the Yukon Riverside Arts Festival, the ODD Gallery hosts The Natural & The Manufactured, an annual thematic project that presents exhibitions, lectures, and artist residencies to explore issues related to art and the environment.
