Jasper Dark Sky Festival

ERC @ Jasper Dark Sky Festival 2022:

The Edmonton Rocketry Club (ERC) is honoured to be part of the 2022 Jasper Dark Sky Festival!

Our club is dedicated to the promotion of model rocketry as a hobby and our members (all ages welcome!) enjoy building and safely launching rockets of all sizes and power classes. We also provide guidance & experience to those wanting to enter the world of high-powered rocketry.

Ever want to build a rocket and learn what makes them go? We have various levels of model rockets that we can help you build and then help you launch them. Depending on the weather, members of the ERC will also be demonstrating some of their larger rockets on Saturday October 22, 2022.

Come join us at our Jasper Rocketry Lab located at the Old Fire Hall (414 Patricia Street) Friday October 21, 2022 between 6:00-9:00 pm and Saturday, October 22, 2022, between 9:00 am – 6:00 pm and enjoy the following activities:

  • Large display of rockets of various sizes and designs, including our 9-foot/50-pound ERC Club Rocket!
