Liquor ban existed during May long weekend in select provincial parks has been quashed.
Beginning this May long weekend, the liquor ban imposed on eight remaining provincial parks – at Aspen Beach, Miquelon Lake, Garner Lake, Dillberry Lake, Pigeon Lake, Whitney Lakes, Jarvis Bay and Wabamun provincial parks will be lifted.
Relaxed liquor regulations:
Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis regulations have been clarified to allow event organizers the flexibility to serve drinks where they see fit on festival grounds. Albertans will be able to responsibly enjoy the environment festival organizers wish to create.
Relaxed liquor regulations will also extend to select provincial park day use area picnic sites later this summer.
Rules and regulations around quiet times, excessive noise and appropriate behaviour continue to be in place and will be enforced as they are in Alberta Parks’ other campgrounds. Enforcement staff will shift their focus from enforcing the previous liquor ban to addressing negative behaviour. Liquor consumption in provincial campgrounds is restricted to adults and in campsites only.
