Jasper Pride and Ski Festival is a colorful and lively annual event held in Jasper, Alberta, Canada. It is a celebration of lgbtq+Q2+ culture and inclusivity that takes place over several days, usually in late February or early March. The festival brings together locals and visitors from around the world to enjoy a wide range of activities in the scenic Rocky Mountains.

Established in 2009, Jasper Pride has grown to become one of the most highly anticipated events in the region. The festival is organized by the Jasper Pride Festival Society, a non-profit organization whose mission is to create a safe and inclusive environment for the lgbtq+Q2+ community and their allies in Jasper National Park.

During the festival, attendees can participate in numerous outdoor and indoor activities. Some of the popular events include skiing, snowboarding, and snowshoeing in the nearby Marmot Basin Ski Resort, as well as ice-skating, dog-sledding, and exploring the stunning nature trails in the park. The festival also offers various workshops, yoga classes, and guided tours for those interested in learning new skills or discovering the area.

Jasper Pride features a diverse lineup of entertainment options, such as live music, comedy shows, drag performances, and dance parties. The festival also hosts a Pride Parade, where participants don colorful outfits and march through the streets of Jasper to celebrate diversity and equality.

To accommodate the growing number of visitors, many local businesses and hotels offer special deals and packages during the event. The festival organizers work closely with the Jasper community to ensure that attendees have a memorable experience and feel welcomed in the town.

Jasper Pride and Ski Festival is a vibrant and unforgettable event that showcases the beauty of the Canadian Rockies while promoting inclusivity and diversity. It offers a unique opportunity for people from all walks of life to come together and share their love for winter sports, nature, and the lgbtq+Q2+ community.

They all have their favorite hang-outs in town… but we will let you find that out by yourself.

The businesses in Jasper are full of Pride stickers in their windows and our mayor traditionally opens our Pride Festival.
