From September 13th to 16th 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.
