Now that summer has officially arrived, we thought we would share three of our favourite ways for you to make the most of your summer visit to Fernie:
Wednesday Summer Socials at the Fernie Arts Station
Located just a short 5 minute walk from the hotel in historic downtown, the Arts Station hosts a free summer concert series every Wednesday night in July and August. Complete with a beer garden, food vendors and local artisans, the evening is one of the best “social” events of the summer. Check our our events calendar for upcoming performances.
Sunday Mountain Market
Located in Rotary Park next door to the hotel, the Fernie Mountain Market runs from Canada Day to the Labour Day weekend. This is the place to experience local organic growers selling fresh picked fruit, veggies, herbs and flowers; herbalist’s hand-crafted soaps and fragrances; baker’s tasty pies and homemade sourdough bread; and local artisans latest creations, for yourself. The Sunday Markets run 10am-2pm in Rotary Park.
Historic Walking Tours
Hosted by the Fernie Museum, historic walking tours provide the visitor with an excellent opportunity to dig a little deeper, and discover a rich and dramatic history of our community. Tours are hosted on most weekends throughout the summer. Visit the Fernie Museum website for more details.
