ARTS WITH ALTITUDE, Jasper’s Annual Arts Festival

In 2009 Alberta’s Department of Culture and Community Spirit came up with a day for celebrating the art and artists of Alberta.

In 2010 the country celebrated with a nation wide celebration called Culture Days.

Those two days, while both in September, were a week apart…so in Jasper we celebrated Arts Days and then filled in the week with art and music and dance – until the following weekend – ending a 10 day celebration on Culture Days.  Jasper’s ARTS WITH ALTITUDE Festival got the attention of CBC and we came in second place as CBC’s CultureVille!

Check out our slide show from 2010!

As we build this annual festival – which the Mayor of Jasper has suggested we build onto – ARTOBER each year…watch for ways to get involved and make sure that Art Is Everywhere!
