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. This year's festival will, by necessity, look different from previous years but we look forward to celebrating safely! 

All Events and activities are subject to change based on Provincial Health Orders. For full details, see the official Griz Days website:
