Wapiti Music Festival

Every August, Wapiti Music Festival delivers a fresh experience to visitors and residents of the Elk Valley. Hear emerging Canadian indie artists on their way to becoming household names. Appreciate veteran performers with new energy to share. Dance with friends.

Walk or ride your bike to the centrally-located Festival site, just blocks from downtown Fernie in a riverside park. Come hungry, so you can enjoy all the good food on offer. The beer, merchandise and kid’s craft tents are also popular.

With a myriad of activities – before, during, and after – and accessible ticket prices, Wapiti is an event for all ages. Kids and seniors are free.

The Festival runs Friday 6 – 11 PM, Saturday Noon – 11 PM.

Lineup Change

Wapiti is excited to announce the addition of the Belle Game to our 2017 lineuo.


At Wapiti Music Festival we focus on finding the best in Canadian Indie. Often these are upcoming bands that have yet to become household names. Others are veterans with new music to share. Regardless, we know you’ll find new music to love at Wapiti. Check out the performers…


Wapiti is held in beautiful Fernie, BC. Come for the music, stay for the biking, hiking, fishing, gnoshing, etc. Read more about Fernie…

Fun Level


We started a tradition at Wapiti a number of years ago. Instead of our logo and poster art on the festival shirts, why not create an opportunity for a local artist to design the shirt and pay them for their time.

This year’s artist is Roni Jurgensen of New Denver. Here is her Moose. Wapiti merchandise will be sporting this fantastic piece this summer. Please check out her website.
