About WPGC 2017

We have great pleasure in inviting the  gold panners and prospectors of the world, and others to attend the 41st World Gold Panning Championships that will take place in the beautiful town of Moffat in August 2017.

WGPC Moffat 2017 will be taking place within the picturesque grounds of the Hope Johnstone Park which lies to the northern edge of the town. A purpose built gold panning arena will be constructed and will cater to the needs of each and every one of you. Our intention is to provide the very best of everything for you, the gold panners and visitors. Food and drink will be available on site, and a comprehensive entertainment package will be in place for each evening.


Look out for our promotional evenings that will take place in Burgdorf, Switzerland, and Placerville, California in 2016.


We will be in Moffat when you arrive to afford you a warm welcome for what promises to be a truly golden and memorable week.
