What happened to this year? Seriously?! It’s December already, and that means ski season is kicking off. It also means the holiday season is upon us – a critical time of year for our local businesses. Some retail businesses can make up to 25-30% of their annual gross revenue for the year during the holiday shopping period. After another challenging year, Fernie businesses are looking forward to this holiday boost.

The Fernie Mountain Market is BACK for their weekly summer market featuring local crafts, produce and more! All vendors sell products they make, bake or grow! COVID protocols may be in place.

Visit the Mountain Market website for more details.

Walking along 2nd Avenue today you would be surprised to learn that 20 years ago the arts scene in Fernie was less than vibrant. Today, a stroll through our historic downtown is a cultural shopping feast. 

Diversity is the name of the game in the Fernie Arts Scene and within a three-block radius you can find an array of makers and artists. Painters, stain glass artists, blacksmiths, photographers, weavers, felters, potters, leatherworkers, jewellers, Fernie represents it all.
