Griz Days is the current recipient of Fernie Brewing Company's fantastic Cheers to Charity program. Get yourself over to FBC, buy a flight, taste something new, and raise funds for Griz Days. How can life get any better?

Storytelling is an ancient artform we continue to use today. Everyone has a bit of storytelling in them. The Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy (CBAL) is running a contest for the 2019 Griz Days. The hope is to draw out the storytelling skills of the children and youth of the Elk Valley as they share their ideas of what the Griz does during the summer.

The Powder King of the Lizard Range is embracing our Canadian fashion tradition of jeans and jean jackets for Griz Days Gone Denim 2019. This year’s winter festival, from March 1-3, will celebrate our casual, rugged style in the same legendary party fashion.

Fernie Griz Days Parade

For just over 40 years, the town of Fernie, BC comes to life the first weekend of March to celebrate the Griz - a local legend who shoots his musket into the sky to encourage the champagne powder this ski town is known for to fall in abundance.
