Main Street Bed Races
Old fashioned bed races are happening in Fernie’s downtown! Get a team of five together and see if you have what it takes to be the fastest bed racers.

Light Up the Night Griz Parade will wind down Fernie’s main street and entertain hundreds of spectators. It starts at 901 Fernie and end at the Vogue Theatre.

A highlight of Griz Days and held at Fernie Alpine Resort. Strictly for fun, this competition features imaginative and hilarious “dummies” on skis launching themselves off a gigantic jump and crashing when they land.

This is Fernie’s biggest celebration, involving the entire community and hundreds of guests, and it’s fun for everyone! See the full schedule here.
