Fernie’s Sunday Summer Social photo gallery

Check out our photo gallery to see if you were spotted at the Downtown Summer Social along with important information on the July 15 social



The summer heat has finally arrived in Fernie and so has the Downtown Summer Social.

This week’s Sunday social on July 15, entitled Made for Fernie, is all about art.

Made in Fernie will feature a variety of creative activities including a play called Fernie a Community Collective at The Arts Station led by local thespian, Denise Baugha.

Performers will share stories and experiences of yesteryear. From the lore of the glorious mountain ranges to the hardships of the town and its people. The play begins at 2pm and is a great way to spend the afternoon with your kids while they learn about the town we all live in.

The Cut and Colour Kids Art Contest is open to all ages, but, if your little ones want to enter, they need to drop off their creations at The Arts Station by 3 p.m. on Friday, July 13.

There is also a Sidewalk Chalk Art Competition for the young at heart.  The chalk is provided.  All you need is an idea!  From Bean Pod to the Brickhouse, local artists and anyone wishing to add their personal touch to the sidewalks of Second Avenue will be setting up and battling for best chalk creation.

Prizes will be up for grabs for all age categories in the kids art contest.

For more information about the play or to register for either art contest, contact The Arts Station at 250-423-4842 or info@theartsstation.com.
