The postponed fourth annual Weefest at The Arts Station is now rescheduled for May 30.

WeeFest is an annual Arts Station fundraiser that profiles Fernie and area artists. The mini festival has been in existence for about a decade, curated by local band Bubba Tres.

A multi-genre single night festival featuring primarily local talent, Wee Fest is a confirmation of the love of music and love of the Arts Station for the enthusiastic crowd. Expect to see all of the great talent that Fernie has to offer from poets to performers and troubadours to trombonists.

Obviously, Bubba Tres will give a hilariously mad, zombie stomping fueled performance; however, many local favourites will take stage.

Arts Station vets, redGirl, led by fiery haired Anie Hepher, as well as, The Bickertons, who were gracious enough to perform at The Arts

Station’s Holiday Social this past December, are set to perform. Author and spoken word artist, Keith Liggett and spoken word/poet/musician, Adam McDonald will also share their work.

Come prepared to participate in an unforgettable evening!

 

Join the party at The Arts Station on Wednesday, May 30 at 8 p.m.

Tickets: Members: $15/adults $10/youth; Regular $20/adults $12/youth (under 18) available at The Arts Station, Freshies and Carosella.
