The Jasper Heritage Rodeo began in 1926, and had its origin with the outfitters and ranchers from the area. It was born out of the love for horses and to encourage the breeding of suitable horses for the mountain trails. The rodeo was held outdoors at what is now Whistlers Campground from 1929 to 1969. The Jasper Curling Club took over and moved the rodeo indoors in 1977. The Jasper Lions Club became involved in 1985 and in 1991 the rodeo became a professional event. It has always been a favorite of locals and tourists alike. In 2002 the event came to be known as the Jasper Heritage Rodeo, and this group of people are proud and pleased to present this years version of the Jasper Heritage Rodeo.
