The annual Griz Days Festival is traditionally Fernie's biggest event, encompassing the entire community from Fernie Alpine Resort to the Provincial Park to the Highway and Historic Downtown Fernie. All events are subject to change but the goal is to get back to the full, wild weekend of fun and activities for the whole family. The theme for this year is Corduroy - dust off those flares and fitted jackets and get ready to party! 

Who is the Griz?

Join the party in Fernie on the first weekend of March and see how Fernie celebrates winter & The Griz! Learn more about the Legend of the Griz

Make sure to pick up your Griz Pin at locations around town and support local charities!
