The Fernie Chamber is encouraging everyone in our community to participate in the Holiday Kickoff event taking place this Friday 26 November. This is a fun-filled day and evening to kick off the holiday season and support local businesses by choosing to #SpendItInFernie. Come out and take advantage of sales, extended shopping hours, door prizes, customer appreciation events, promotions and much more happening at businesses across town!

On top of getting a kickstart on your holiday shopping, there is so much to do in and around downtown this Friday. Enjoy a family friendly matinee at the Vogue Theatre, complete a scavenger hunt, do some crafts, and catch Santa himself and the Griz downtown. Make your way to Station Square at 6:45 pm as we light up the night with a tree lighting and fireworks display that kicks off at 7pm sharp.

And an added bonus, spend money at any local Fernie business this Friday 26 November for a chance to win a $1000 gift card to a local business of your choice. Spend from November 27 through to December 31 for chances to win weekly prizes of $500! To enter simply make a purchase at a local business, go to to fill in your details to enter, and keep your receipt to claim your prize!

Brad Parsell (Executive Director of the Fernie Chamber) says, “After another challenging year it is so important that as a community we rally around our local businesses this holiday season. We have such a diverse and vibrant business community with lots to offer for the perfect gift. Come out this Friday night, enjoy the carols and fireworks, and check out what’s on offer. I encourage everyone to shop local this season and #SpendItInFernie!”

While gathering outdoors in Station Square to watch the light up and fireworks is encouraged, everyone is reminded to stay safe and keep your distance as you enjoy the show.
