20th Annual Yukon Riverside Arts Festival

August 15 - August 17

Free

The Klondike Institute of Art & Culture celebrates the 20th Annual Yukon Riverside Arts Festival on the weekend of August 15 – 16, 2020. Due to the current public health situation, this year’s festival will not be a conventional gathering and will not feature the usual artist demonstrations or main festival site on the banks of the Yukon River at Riverside Park.

Instead, artists from Dawson City and beyond will present installations, exhibitions, performances, film, and audio work in a variety of innovative spaces throughout the community. We ask that everyone adheres to the Yukon’s Chief Medical Officer’s physical distancing guidelines at all times when viewing the work.

Those who do not live in Dawson City or do not feel comfortable viewing the work in person are encouraged to view the artwork and documentation remotely in the form of an online exhibition starting August 17 at www.YRAF.ca
