Planning for the 13th annual MasqueParade is underway. If you’d like to be involved with an enthusiastic and creative group of folks and help make this year’s MasqueParade happen visit our News Update and we’ll link you into the fun!

Some of the best culture is the stuff that you make for yourselves, and that is certainly the case with MasqueParade, which celebrates its 13th 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. Spirit Square is transformed into an appropriately enchanted realm, ready to receive Snow King and Lady Spring as they are conducted down from the mountain by torch-lit escorts.

These royal revelers will then preside over a glorious night of parties and pageantry. Spectators are encouraged to “show their wild side” and become joyous participants as the night comes alive with music, dancing, stilt walking, giant puppets, snow and ice carving, shadow plays, fire spinning, and other circus arts.

Think of it as being a wintry counterpart to those crazy Burning Man festivities in the Nevada desert. Many weeks of preparation will culminate in one amazing and unforgettable night, when over 1,000 people come together for an expressive and artistic street party.
