FernFest is a music and arts festival and neighbourhood celebration held in Fernwood Square. FernFest began in 1996 and has recently celebrated its 20th Anniversary in June 2015.

Fernwood NRG has been organizing this festival for two decades with the help of local businesses and many volunteers. The soul of FernFest has remained while it has grown to draw residents from all over Greater Victoria. Local artisans, kid’s activities, art, neighbouring organizations, local musicians and performers, and many volunteers all come together to create an inspiring weekend of shared celebration. We are so grateful to spend summer solstice in our public square with you.
