The 7th Annual Jasper Pride Festival will be under the sub-title “From Jasper with Love”, a captivating motto that stands for Jasper’s wide open arms,  its legendary community spirit and welcoming atmosphere. 

Jasper is the place to be where everyone can be true to oneself,  where everyone can feel beautiful and special. 

The title is also a not-so-hidden reference to an old spy movie, highlighting how exceptionally fortunate we are to be gathering in a place like Jasper, a destination know for it’s openness.

At the (00)7th Annual Jasper Pride Gala Party on Saturday March 19, 2016, and all other events, guests are welcome to dress up as their favorite movie characters, their favorite super heroes and super villains, being free to defy typical Bond stereotypes in your very own way . For example, cross-dressing, showcasing our gender diversity or expressing fluid gender-roles.  

Jasper Pride Festival will be the biggest in its history, featuring over 20 events over the course of four days.

ABOUT JASPER: 

Jasper is a traditionally diverse and welcoming community attracting travelers, workers, students, ski bums and residents from all over the world. The unique atmosphere is a perfect fit for the resident queer community, the LGBT traveler and the many LGBT couples who wed in Jasper every year. 

The businesses in Jasper are full of Pride stickers in their windows and our mayor traditionally opens the Pride Festival. Last year, for the first time, the rainbow flag was officially raised at the Fire Hall for International Day against Homophobia. The local advocacy group OUT Jasper has been a popular focal point for the queer community for years. The LGBT friendliness of Jasper has been noted all around Canada and been featured in various media outlets, LGBT, alternative, mainstream. Learn more HERE.
