The Palace Grand Theatre opened in gala style July 1899.  The theatre was a combination of a luxurious European opera house and a boomtown dance hall. It was built by "Arizona Charlie Meadows", a wild west showman who came to Dawson City during the Klondike Gold Rush. The Palace Grand played host to a variety of entertainment, from wild west shows to opera. When the show got slow "Arizona" himself would get on stage and perform shooting tricks for the audience.

Join us for tours of the “prettiest little theatre north of San Francisco”. The theatre also hosts live entertainment, music, drama, comedy and film featuring international performers and local talent. The Palace Grand is also a key venue during the annual Dawson City Music Festival.
