About The Event

The delightful and exuberant MasqueParade celebrates its 18th anniversary this February. Part self-expression via community art-making and part theatrical spectacle, MasqueParade honours the history and cultural heritage of Golden’s mountain home with an artistic street party that attracts over 1,000 participants. Spirit Square will be transformed into a magic realm with music, dancing, stilt walking, giant puppets, snow and ice carving, shadow plays, fire spinning, and other circus arts. 

Our core group of a couple of dozen movers and makers invite you to get in touch with us and come out for our planning gatherings that will start in November ’23. Around then, a theme idea will bubble up to the top and be captured to guide us for all the various arty making that community folks and groups will bring to the Pageant on February 10th, 2024.

Email us at info@kickinghorseculture.ca to get in touch and tell us that you are so excited to get involved with the either creative side of making the Pageant … and equally important … the production side of making the Pageant. Don’t be afraid… we don’t bite. And there’s Pizza!
