This festival could not have been possible without the generous support of our 2014 sponsors: Byars-Wright; Daily Mountain Eagle; Neslon, Bryan and Jones; Honda of Jasper/Hyundai of Jasper, Scott Crump Toyota Scion and The City of Jasper.
In addition to 11 great performances, many visited some of our arts, crafts, information, business and activity booths! Some activities included guest appearance of Batman & Robin Saturday Night, Rock Climbing Wall, Coca-Cola Petting Zoo, inflatables and more!
