Major renovation work at the Palace Grand Theatre has come to a close and we are very proud to reopen it this spring!  We’ll be celebrating with a Grand Opening in July, vaudeville-style! Stay tuned for updates…

Re-join us in 2018 for tours of the “prettiest little theatre north of San Francisco”, or take part in an interactive show to vote on which of three infamous gold rush dreamers and schemers should be crowned "The Greatest Klondiker". 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.

Greatest Klondiker Contest

Five days a week Parks Canada staff raises the roof of the Palace Grand transforming into characters from the gold rush, regaling you with their adventures to prove why they, and they alone are the greatest of the dreamers and schemers of this particular place and time. Who will be crowned the greatest? You decide!
