Gather around our long garden table to recognize and celebrate indigenous culture and people in our community. Please bring a potluck dish to share. After lunch, Pat Moore invites all interested in some rock painting. All are welcome.

There are plenty of people who parrot the mountain-town refrain, “Came for winter and stayed for the summer” in these parts. While it doesn’t roll off the tongue as well, it’s also fitting to say, “Came for the outdoor rec and stayed for the culture.”

Join for a wonderful evening of Japanese culture with guest curator Barry Till in attendance, along with sake tasting and authentic Japanese cuisine by Yamagoya. This event launches the Fernie Museum's must-see summer exhibit, From Geisha To Diva: The Kimono of Ichimaru.

As spring shines in, I have been awarded the great honour of Poet Laureate by the Fernie Academy for poetry month. I value this title beyond measure as I recognize that simply by doing what I love, I am accepted, I am recognized, and I am valued by my community. 

ur simple actions can have concrete and deep-reaching effects on our neighbours.

A geisha is a woman highly trained in the arts of music, dance and entertaining, spending years to perfect the various art forms she is required to master.

Japanese calligraphy is the art of beautiful, stylized handwriting with a pen or brush and ink. It involves the correct formation of characters, the ordering of the various parts, and the harmony of proportions.

During the demonstration, you can receive a short phrase or your name in Japanese for you to take home with you for a donation of $5.
