For twenty years the town of Jasper hosted the bi-annual Jasper Heritage Folk Festival, and now we're the next note on its evolutionary scale. The Jasper Heritage Folk and Blues Society is a registered non-profit organization dedicated to promoting Canadian Rocky Culture through roots, rhythm, folk and blues music. Our vision is all about marquis presentations, partnerships and festivals. We're not your parents folk festival society, but we're old enough to remember its glory days. We were there near the end, the final few who organized and agonized for nights on end to make sure the show went on during that heritage weekend in August. In 2012, the JHFBS did some soul searching and felt that that time had come again; the right time to revive the beloved folk festival. With the popularity of musical meccas, a stones throw east at Hinton's Wild Mountain Festival and west at Dunster's Robson Valley Music Festival ,we realized that Jasperites have a real desire for festivals that continues into September; often unsatisfied. To answer that call, we are busy working on the Jasper Folk Music Festival for September 13th-15th 2013.
