What the Dickens is going on in Fernie?

The holiday season is upon us, and local musicians will spend the month of December serenading Fernie with their favourite Christmas tunes.

The holiday season is upon us, and local musicians are getting ready to spend the month of December serenading Fernie with their favourite Christmas tunes. Fernie’s annual festival, What The Dickens, kicks off December 1 with the first of four Jingle Jams. Yolanda and Kumi from The Trinity Mountain Ensemble will perform at Beanpod Chocolate from 2 until 4 p.m. Audiences can enjoy a treat and a warm beverage as the duo gets you into the holiday spirit.

Jingle Jams will take place at a different location every Friday afternoon, right up until Christmas. The Yayefal Sisters will entertain at Loaf Bakery on December 8, Sheva will perform at Freshies on December 15, and Mike and Anie Hepher will host the final jam at Ghostrider Trading Company on December 22.

The Jingle Jams are just one part of an event-filled What The Dickens festival. This year the festival will feature a number of activities happening all month long, including Clawhammer card making, the Gingerbread House Carpenter competition, the Arts Station members’ Christmas Sweater Social, Freckles Children’s Theatre, and Yule Create Art kid’s camp. There will also be musical performances by Shred Kelly, Redgirl, and the Fernie Chamber Orchestra.
