Wapiti Music Festival Fernie BC

A Fresh Mountain Experience

Wapiti is Fernie BC’s summer music festival. An indie music festival in a park by a river at the foot of a mountain, it’s a beautiful setting for some amazing music.

There’s great music, tons of dancing, delicious food, tasty beverages, souvenirs, and the friendliest people.

Come for the music and stay for the town. Fernie is famous for its winters, but it’s even better in the summer: hiking, biking, golfing, fishing, eating – you name it!


Festival Dates are August 9, 10 2019.

Passes will go on sale for the 2019 festival on March 1st

Wapiti Music Festival has a wonderful food fair area. It is filled with everything from kombucha to cabbage. There are plenty of healthy options that are good for you – and some that are just good. We make an effort to find food vendors of variety and quality.

There are non-food vendors too, for those of you that like to shop. Clothes, music, souvenirs, and more! Check out the Merch Tent if you’re looking for Wapiti or Band merchandise.
