From September 8th to 11th the Fernie Museum is hosting the Fernie Chautauqua and Fall Fair. Historically, the Dominion Chautauqua was a travelling institution that visited Fernie each June from 1917 to 1935 to hold a 4 to 6 day festival of musical numbers, lectures, dramatic productions and magic or puppet shows. The Fernie Museum, the Fernie Art Station, Wildsight, and the Fernie Chamber of Commerce is resurrecting this historic festival to celebrate our local arts, music, history and cuisine. The event will feature musical entertainment, an artisan market, gallery walks, a fall fair and much more.

The festival is also a wonderful opportunity to showcase our Striving For Sustainability menus in both Max Restaurant and the Pub Bar & Grill which we feel compliments the “Farm to Fork” culture Chautauqua is promoting. In addition to making the majority of our menu items in house, we proudly feature regionally sourced produce from Red Hat Co-Operative Farms in Southern Alberta, high quality beef from Alberta ranchers, sustainable Kuterra salmon, Ocean Wise seafood products and “Frog Friendly” Wild coffee.

We hope you join us for this wonderful event!
