Just over 3 years ago, Chantel Souliere took the dream of Fernie having an outdoor music festival and brought it to reality. With the help of local sponsors and lots of time and planning, Wapiti has become a popular summer festival taking place right in our backyard! (Not really, but close enough.)
Showcasing what Canada has to offer, in this two day festival taking place August 9th – 10th, 2013 at the Annex Park. Conveniently located just 4 blocks from the Red Tree Lodge, Wapiti offers a gorgeous view of the Three Sisters and a variety of Indie music for all different age groups. This year’s line up includes Plants and Animals, Current Swell, Inlet Sound, Delhi 2 Dublin, Loon Choir, David Celia, No Sinner, Devon Coyote, Portage and Main, Good Ol’ Goats and Fernie’s own Shred Kelly!
With the recent addition of CBC sponsorship, you’ll be able to catch all the hottest Indie bands on the CBC stage, hosted by CBC personalities! You won’t want to miss this! Tickets are going fast and the first 3 tiers are already sold out. Tickets are now $65 for the whole weekend and can be purchased on Wapiti’s official website. Children 12 and under and Seniors 65 or older are FREE! With beer gardens, local food and a kids play tent, it great fun for the whole family, at an affordable price.

Over the past 5 months, Fernie has seen plenty of those legendary powder days, after all it’s what were known for and with Fernie Alpine Resort’s closing day looming, nothing says “goodbye” to winter and “hello” to summer like a party!
Fernie Alpine Resort always knows how to throw an epic party and Fernival is no exception! Join us in celebrating another fantastic year of riding this coming weekend, April 13th-14th!
Fernival is a festival for adults and children of all ages, filled with live music, beer gardens and of course the Powder, Peddle, Paddle Relay. The festivities start April 13th at 12 noon with the opening of the Bud Light Event Gardens. At 2:00pm, live music hits the stage with opening act Cumberland. At 3:30pm the main act, Canadian Music Legends Chilliwack hit the stage with their popular 70’s and 80’s tracks including “My Girl (Gone Gone Gone)”, “I Believe”, “Whatcha Gonna Do”, “Fly At Night” and “Lonesome Mary”. The Powder, Peddle, Paddle Relay is a strong tradition in Fernie and has been running since 1984! Race as a team or an individual and challenge yourself to this race, including SKI (Top of Bear, down Cedar Bowl and Cedar Trail to Base Area), BIKE (from Base area through Timberline Subdivision to Hwy #3 to Elk River), PADDLE (down Elk River to bottom of Ski Hill Road), RUN (from bottom of ski hill road uphill through Timberline Subdivision through parking lot to Base area Finish Line).
