This year the Fernie Griz Days Weekend and International Women's Day are on the same weekend - rather than forget about it amongst all the hype of Griz Days, The Royal figured they'd put a bunch of chicas on CENTRE STAGE for a whole night of awesome female DJs! Because let's face it... women are awesome and we wouldn't be here without them!

The 43rd annual Griz Days are back and The Fernie Hotel is so excited!

They've got The Nova Scotiables band joining us on Friday at 8pm and Saturday at 10pm.

Local legends tell the myth of a long lost man, shoulders 6 feet wide, who lives among the wildlife deep in the mountains above Fernie, BC. As the story goes, a shot from his 8-foot musket brings blankets of powder to the valley. Locals know him only as “The Griz”. Dylan Siggers among the other townsfolk has made a life of this tradition, finding purpose in the abundance of snow brought by this mythical man.
