The Snow King’s annual Masque Parade honors the history and cultural heritage of Golden’s mountain home.

Some of the best culture is the stuff that you make for yourselves, and that is absolutely the case with Masque Parade, which is having its 12th anniversary this February. Part creative self-expression via community art-making and part theatrical spectacle, Masque Parade above all honors the history and cultural heritage of Golden’s mountain home.

Spirit Square is transformed into a magical realm appropriate to welcome Snow King and Lady Spring down from the mountain with a torch-lit escort en route to a glorious night of pageantry and celebratory revels.

Spectators almost become indivisible from participants as the night comes alive with music, dancing, stilt walking, giant puppets, shadow plays, fire spinning, and other circus arts. Weeks of preparation will have led up to this amazing night, when over 1,000 people come together for a most expressive and artistic street party.
