As one of the largest Dark Sky Preserves in the world, Jasper has reason to celebrate, and does so each October with the Jasper Dark Sky Festival. Past guests have included Jay Ingram, Col. Chris Hadfield, and former Mythbusters hosts Grant Imahara, Tory Belleci, and Kari Byron. Signature events include Symphony under the Stars at the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge, Beyond the Stars at Lake Annette, and TELUS World of Science family programming.
Throughout the year, several new dark sky adventures are available for visitors. Embark on evening rock climbing or a dark sky hike, or learn more about astronomy with programming at the Jasper Planetarium.
