Historic Downtown Fernie

Historic Downtown Fernie is heart of the community

Second Avenue is the hub of cultural and commercial activity in the valley.  Here you will always find something to do.  From eating on patios to street festivals to just hanging out and saying hi to everyone you meet, and should meet as you wander the streets.

From 1st Avenue to 6th Ave and 2nd Street to 14th Street encompasses the downtown core.

People who live here can walk to everything and love the energy of town living.

The heart of Fernie's vibrant community is the small but perfectly formed Historic Downtown. Centred around 2nd Avenue, Fernie offers boutique shopping, dining, attractions and activities of a more gentle nature.Soak up the charming atmosphere from a summer patio or on a snowy stroll, while enjoying spectacular mountain views in every direction.

Most of the buildings in the downtown core date from 1908/09 and emanate an air of permanence rarely found in small town BC.
