Logger Shows

Snow Golf – 6 holes at the Fernie Golf Club!
Come out and experience winter golf! Fun for groups, families or singles. The ‘groomed’ 6 hole layout is close to the clubhouse and will take less than an hour to complete. Assemble a team of four or come as a single or pair. Lots of prizes to win so come down in your fur hats and coats and have fun on the course!

Main Street Bed Races
Back by popular demand is the good, old fashioned bed races! Taking place on 2nd Ave, get your team of five together and see if you have what it takes to be the fastest bed racers.

Griz Days Parade
The heart of Griz Days! The Griz Days Parade will light up the night as it winds through downtown!

Live Music and Fireworks
Station Square is the centre for events, endless live music and fireworks are on the schedule.

Raging Elk Dummy Downhill
A highlight of Griz Days festival, this competition features imaginative & hilarious “dummies” on skis launching themselves off a gigantic jump. Dummies are judged based on their construction, creativity, distance they fly off of the jump and the carnage factor 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.
