Celebrate Canada's 155th birthday with family friendly activities and entertainment based at Fernie Aquatic Centre. 

Canada Day has always been a popular day for Fernie to gather and celebrate friendship, fun and community. In recognition of our location within the Ktunaxa Amakis, the day will begin with a flag raising ceremony at Fernie City Hall followed by a Reconciliation Walk to the celebration grounds around the Fernie Aquatic Centre. 

Please note that due to high fire risk in the summer months, Fernie does not have a fireworks display for Canada Day.
