Jasper: Proud and Free

Jasper's Pride Festival fills the streets with electric energy and rainbow flags. Come visit our little mountain town from April 19-22 and enjoy fun events, great entertainment, and endless positivity.

Mountain Park Lodges has been a sponsor of the festival since its beginnings in 2010. The festival has grown from a couple dozen attendees to more than 1200 expected in 2018. It's now the third largest Pride festival in Alberta, behind only Edmonton and Calgary.
