Jasper in January


Jan 14 - Jan 30 | 2022

Celebrate the season with everything that makes
our frostiest months also our most memorable.
Your nose might be chilly but your
heart has never been warmer.

Looks like we'll be venturing a little different than planned this January!

Due to recent Omicron transmission levels, Tourism Jasper is making some changes to the upcoming Jasper in January program. While the festival as a whole will continue, events will be reduced—with some being postponed and a few cancelled altogether.

Select program changes include:

  • Street Party & Fireworks – Cancelled
  • After Dark Concert Series – Cancelled
  • Wine in Winter – Postponed to April
  • Whiskey Wine & Hops – Postponed to April

As always, we're encouraging residents and visitors to be respectful and adhere to public health restrictions at all times.

While it's sad to change another highly anticipated event, we are heartened by the resilience, understanding, and above all, respect for one another's health and safety that both residents and visitors have shown in Jasper.

Although we won't be celebrating together as we all hoped, we encourage everyone to take some time and celebrate the lighter side of winter—safely. Get outside and enjoy the many light installations, fantastic skiing, and world-class outdoor recreational activities still available as part of Jasper in January.
