Summer has finally arrived y’all! And unlike the past two summers, this year we can dare to look forward to a full-scale return of Fernie’s signature festivals, events, races, and activities. Events are such a key part of what makes our mountain town so vibrant, and it’s been tough to see many of them sidelined or significantly scaled down for years on account of the pandemic. But it seems the light has finally appeared at the end of the tunnel.
