Pro Tip
Look for the Cucumber Mint Cider from Howling Moon Cider in the beverage garden this year.

A lot has changed over the last 10 years, but some things remain the same... the fashion.

Wapiti Music Festival Society is cancelling the 10th Anniversary Wapiti Music Festival scheduled for August 7th and 8th in Fernie, BC. Due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic and in light of the statements of the Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry regarding not lifting the order against mass gatherings, the society has concluded that for the safety of all involved cancellation is necessary.

This August 7 and 8, the tenth annual Wapiti Music Festival takes place in the Annex Park, alongisde the majestic Elk River in beautiful Fernie, BC. Each spring as the event approaches the air is thick with anticipation. Who will headline this year? How can it trump the epic live performances we've enjoyed in past (Black Pistol Fire anyone)? One thing is for sure, the team at Wapiti never disappoints and getting early bird tickets is always a no-brainer.

Event Date(s): 
Repeats every day until Sat Aug 10 2019.
