A special event is defined as a planned temporary activity conducted for recreation, entertainment or promotional purposes, and includes a parade, concert, theatrical or musical performance, sports event, fair, circus, contest and show.

A special event will require a licence if the event is carried on in a park for profit, gain, fund raising or commercial promotion, and includes an undertaking by a charitable organization, or by an organization or individual on a non-profit basis.

Jasper National Park issues special event licences for events occurring outside the Jasper townsite.
