Our dedicated team of volunteers & community members have spent the past few months seriously deliberating over the choice to cancel our annual 5-day celebration due to the overwhelming public health concerns due to the COVID-19 virus outbreak this year. It is because of our love for our community that we have made the painstaking decision to cancel our events for the 2020 Valdez Gold Rush Days season. Your health & safety is our utmost concern and out of an abundance of caution we feel it is best to cancel all of our events and activities to prevent the spread of the virus. We know it's another tough blow, but we are confident that this community can handle this hardship & will grow closer as a community! We look forward to the future and another Valdez Gold Rush Days when this threat is contained, Stay strong, Valdez, we love you!
