Fall Fair

Embrace the Harvest Season:

Thank you for joining us at this year’s Fall Fair!

See you next year!


Wildsight Elk Valley is once again hosting the Fernie Fall Fair and we’re celebrating with a festival that is as unique as our community! Did you know the 1st Fall Fair was in 2016 at Prentice Park?

The Fernie Fall Fair is a grassroots public event that encourages people to bridge rural and urban living through enjoying locally grown food.

It is our goal to showcase healthy, farmstead living and promote the importance and achievability of sustainable food production in the Elk Valley.

Get your taste buds ready for the Blue Ribbon competitions — pies, cakes, preserves, and bread bragging rights will be contested for.

Fernie’s favorite Sunday event, the Fernie Mountain Market, and its amazing vendors will be providing the best of the harvest for you to take home!

Join us for the Fernie Fall Fair at Rotary Park (6th A Ave) where all sorts of fun will be happening from 10am-2pm on September 10th, 2023.
