The Fernie Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce the return of Fernie’s annual winter festival. The 46th annual Griz Days celebration will take place the weekend of March 3 – 5.
The Fernie Chamber of Commerce acknowledges that its office and the Griz Days events take place on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of The Traditional Territory of the Ktunaxa Nation. We thank the Ktunaxa and all First Nations who continue to live on these lands and care for them, along with the waters and all that is above and below.
The Griz pin design for this winter’s Griz Days is being themed ‘Griz Gone Corduroy’, be sure to dress in full corduroy as a tribute to a fashion staple that has endured the test of time, as well as to pay homage to those savory first tracks on freshly groomed corduroy snow at the ski hill! The Chamber is in full swing planning all your favorite Griz Days events like the parade, live entertainment, lumberjack show, fireworks, the Extreme Griz competition and much more to be announced! Check out the satellite events around town too, like the popular Dummy Downhill at Fernie Alpine Resort.
Wendy McDougall, Executive Director of the Fernie Chamber, says, “We are thrilled to be hosting Fernie’s favorite winter festival in all its glory. We are bringing back some classic events like the bed races and the smoosh ski races and of course the beer gardens! Griz Days is a magical time for locals and visitors alike, with so many activities all weekend long and for all ages, it truly is an event not to be missed!”
