Diversifying Dawson Creek

Dawson Creek is more than just Mile ‘0’ on the Alaska Highway. The City of Dawson Creek has adopted a Sports and Event Tourism Plan to help diversify tourism in the city. This is the beginning of a dynamic platform that will be an important contributor to the city’s economy.

Dawson Creek signed a five-year hosting agreement with Hockey Canada. The partnership will include one event hosted at the Encana Events Centre every 18-24 months. This showcase of Canadian and International talent allows the fans to watch the best hockey players in the world in an excellent sporting venue, the Encana Events Centre.

The Mile Zero Cruisers are looking to host their 26th Annual Summer Cruise July 10–12, 2020 downtown Dawson Creek.

This event brings more than 2,000 attendees to the City of Dawson Creek to take in the largest Show and Shine in the north, displaying more than 400 collector vehicles.

Dawson Creek is also home to the “Greatest Show in the Peace,” the Dawson Creek Exhibition & Stampede held annually in August. More than 14,000 visitors come to take in five full days of events such as the Canadian Pro Tour Rodeo, World Professional Chuckwagon Racing, agriculture fair, midway and much more.

Dawson Creek is more!
