For the holiday season, the Trites and Wood Museum Shop will be resplendent with a wonderful array of new merchandise including jewellery, textiles, and Fernie heritage building themed artwork, ornaments and giftware.

Join Museum staff November 30 as they join the Fernie Chamber of Commerce and downtown merchants in kicking off the holiday shopping season. Holiday refreshments will be served. 

Members will receive a special 25% discount on all non-consignment merchandise this one day only! Memberships make a great holiday gift as well. 

Fernie’s historic buildings are well known for distinctive rooflines, unique locally-fired rose-gold brick and stone, and a variety of international influences. Only a few original interiors remain although many hints of the past can be seen in pressed tin ceilings, smoke-stained exposed brickwork and vintage windows.

A cemetery is the surest place to find peace. St. Margaret's Cemetery in Fernie is one such cemetery. Old stones mix with old trees, standing quietly together just above town, touched only by the passing breeze.

Fernie entered the First World War in 1914 with optimism and a sense of national pride.

Five years later, it emerged having experienced staggering losses and multiple controversies that threatened to tear the community apart. Fernie was profoundly affected by conflicting impulses of labour, loyalty, and ethnicity.

Fernie Ghost Tours is a parade of Fernie’s most ghastly ghost stories, blood-soaked buildings and horrible happenings in the downtown core. Every tale is crafted from dark history, local legend, or vivid ghostly experiences shared by Fernie locals. Is Fernie haunted? Could our pleasant streets hide an eerie truth, too terrible for the light of day?

Take the Fernie Ghost Tour and find out!

Please note tours are 19+, not for the faint hearted and should be taken with a pinch of salt, and sense of humour!

Presented by Tunnel Theatre.
