The World Gold Panning Championships were first held in Finland in 1977. Four years later in 1981 the World Gold Panning Association was formed and competitions have been held every year since.
Each year, a different host destination is chosen and hundreds of gold panners from around the world descend to claim titles in a variety of categories. The last time Dawson City hosted the WGPC was in 2007, and we are honoured to have once again been chosen to host the event for the 5th time since its inception.
Sponsorship of WGPC 2021 will be an impressive opportunity for your company or brand to be showcased to a large group of people with a vested interest in the Klondike and Yukon region who have been known to frequent Dawson outside of just this event.
Events like these are what make Dawson City a vibrant and coveted place to live and visit. Please stay tuned for all of our sponsorship opportunities for this one of a kind event!
