There are plenty of people who parrot the mountain-town refrain, “Came for winter and stayed for the summer” in these parts. While it doesn’t roll off the tongue as well, it’s also fitting to say, “Came for the outdoor rec and stayed for the culture.”

Repeats every day until Sun Apr 14 2019.

One thing about Fernie is how easy it is to choose how social you want to be without needing to make plans. You can turn up to free gallery openings, participate in group bike rides, sign up for workshops or join a regular yoga class and be surrounded by friends and friendly faces, all ready to chat and maybe grab a coffee or a beer afterwards.

When you hear “mountain town,” arts and culture isn’t normally the first thing that comes to mind. Over the last eight years, the Wapiti team has been a beacon for another dimension to our community.

Event Date: 
Repeats every day until Sun Sep 30 2018.
