We are sad to announce that FernFest is postponed until next year—June 18 & 19, 2021.

The health and safety of our patrons, staff, volunteers, and community is of the utmost importance to us and so we’ve decided to postpone our festival during the Covid-19 pandemic. We’ll miss seeing all your smiling faces all together but are grateful for the effort of our community and the whole world to keep each other safe.

We are so thankful for all the businesses, artists, musicians, volunteers, city staff, and community members who support Fernwood’s neighbourhood festival year after year. We can’t wait to celebrate our 25th anniversary FernFest together next year.
