Courage. Strength. Humility and the Truth

Join local Indigenous partners for insightful storytelling sessions. Hear their truths, reflections and how to make sense of the world in these tragic times. Togetherness is what is called for; You are invited to the amphitheatre at Centennial Park this Thursday, July 1st to be part of a healing and understanding event as we move towards reconciliation and a better Canada. Show your support by wearing orange.
We encourage all attendees to follow any COVID-19 restrictions and respect for those around them who choose to maintain a COVID-19 safe environment around them.

Heat Warning is in effect. Please take care of yourselves and be prepared for high temperatures. Drink plenty of water and have some with you. There is limited shade Centennial Park.

Rivers of Orange

Just as the mighty Athabasca River flows through the heart of Jasper and comes together with the Miette and Maligne Rivers, we ask you also to come together and show your support for Indigenous communities and Peoples in mourning. We encourage you to create your own #riversoforange throughout Jasper.
You can show your support by:
  • Creating an orange themed window display (handprints, hearts, animal paw prints, # tags)
  • Messages of support on orange hearts
  • Sidewalk chalk art
  • Display indigenous art pieces in your business
The ways you can show your support are limitless.

Jasper Canada Day - white-logo

Although we couldn't gather together to celebrate in our traditional way, that didn't stop Jasper from celebrating!

The community events scheduled for July 1, 2020 in Jasper National Park were cancelled to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and to adhere to public health directives, so the Jasper Canada Day Committee got creative and came up with new ways to celebrate while staying a moose-length apart. We had a Plaid in the Park Yard Decorating Contest and Canada Day Porch Concerts.

 

We would like to thank:

  • everyone who decorated their homes
  • all of the musicians who played, bringing music and joy to our day!
  • all of the businesses that donated prizes for our decorating contest:
