Chautauqua Afternoon Tea
Join the Heart's Content Ensemble string quartet at the Chautauqua Afternoon Tea. For over a century, Fernie has had a significant British community, and formal afternoon tea was a tradition among those who immigrated to Fernie from England, Scotland and Wales.
The menu includes our own Fernie Blend tea by Murchies Tea of Victoria; scones with jam, marmalade and Devonshire cream; Coronation chicken, smoked salmon with cream cheese, and cucumber with cress finger sandwiches; and dainties.
HEARTS CONTENT QUARTET is a classical ensemble based in the East Kootenay region with Kerri Holmes playing viola, Penny Long playing cello, Shelagh Gunn playing violin, and Sara Topping also on the violin.
