Fernie Pride Society

The Elk Valley Pride Festival is back! It may look a little different but the same spirit of love, inclusion, and celebration is stronger than ever.

From September 24-27 the Fernie Pride Society is hosting both virtual and in-person events throughout Fernie. Classic events like the much-loved Drag Storytime and Craft will be virtual so all kids can join in the fun while other activities will be a combination of a small group of people while also being available online to watch and participate in. 

New additions to the Festival include a Drive-In Movie, an Outside with Pride author event, Art History with Jackie, new workshops and education sessions, and much more!

Sparrow Hair

Sparrow Hair is bringing Bumble and bumble to Fernie! 

Salon born in 1977 in New York City, Bumble and bumble hair care and styling products stand for high quality and high performance.

For the past ten years, Sparrow Hair has been an Aveda salon that has developed a bit of an Aveda fan club. Although the experience has been great, salon owners Stacey Goldade and Noel Vanoostenbrugge felt it was time to bring something new, fresh, and fun to their clients. 

Sparrow Hair is the only salon in the Kootenays to offer Bumble and bumble hair care products all of which are cruelty free, paraben and silicone free. With the exception of few, they are also vegan.
Bumble and bumble and select Aveda products are available for in-salon purchase or curb side pickup.
