Fernie Pizza and Pasta
1221 7th Ave

Conveniently located on along Highway 3, Fernie Pizza and Pasta is known for its pizza, pasta, BBQ chicken and ribs, and surprising ‘extras’ including samosas, donairs, curry, and calzones which they have been serving to the Fernie community and visitors for the last four years. To add to their already popular take-out service, owners Tej and Nina Sran recently added dining in as an option for customers with room for up to 45 guests. Alongside this addition, they now have a liquor license which allows diners to enjoy refreshments with their meal.

Open seven days a week, Fernie Pizza and Pasta opens at noon for lunch Wednesday through Sunday for the summer season and at 4pm for dinner. They are open until 10pm weekdays, and 11:30pm Friday and Saturday.

Fernie Women’s Centre

The Fernie Women’s Resource Centre’s Stopping the Violence service provides free counselling and outreach services to women in the Elk Valley.

New this fall, they will be offering a walking group, encouraging women to explore the outdoor spaces in and around Fernie. The group hopes to help women make connections with others who enjoy walking, and there will also be opportunities to develop skills in how to use nature as a resource for emotional healing.

The walking group will take place on Wednesdays from 1-3pm, starting August 29th. Please call 250-423-4687 to register, or stop by the office at 1592 10th Ave.

Terry Fox Foundation
This September 16, the 38th annual Terry Fox Run is taking place in Fernie! A grassroots, volunteer-led, non-competitive event that is family oriented, the organisation is currently seeking a new Run Organiser to chair the Fernie event.

If you are interested in this event, are enthusiastic, organised, and possess leadership skills, and want to make a difference, they encourage you to contact them to join their mission to, “change lives for the better every day.”

The Terry Fox Foundation will work closely with the volunteer chair and provide support, training and materials to ensure the success of this year’s run. Contact, 1-888-836-9786 for more information.
