WeeFest delayed until spring


Because of the Film Festival happening the same weekend, the event will have to be rescheduled until sometime in the spring.  A date will be announced when it has finalized.


WeeFest (Friday, Feb. 24) is an annual Arts Station fundraiser that profiles Fernie and area artists.  The mini festival has been in existence for about a decade, curated by local band Bubba Tres.

A multi-genre single night festival featuring primarily local talent, Wee Fest is a confirmation of the love of music and love of the Arts Station for the enthusiastic crowd.  Expect to see all of the great talent that Fernie has to offer from poets to performers and troubadours to trombonists.

Obviously, Bubba Tres will give us a hilariously mad, zombie stomping fueled performance; however, many local favourites will take stage.  Arts Station vets, redGirl, led by fiery haired Anie Hepher, as well as, The Bickertons, who were gracious enough to perform at The Arts Station’s Holiday Social this past December, are set to perform.  Author and spoken word artist, Keith Liggett and spoken word / poet / musician, Adam McDonald will also share their work with us but don’t think the action stops there!  Look for more announcements as the date gets closer.  You didn’t think it would be that easy to get all of the secrets out of us just yet, did you?
Come prepared to participate in an unforgettable evening!

Have a question or concern about this event or any others happening at The Arts Station?  Give us a call at 250-423-4842 or send an email to [email protected].

The show begins at 8pm at The Arts Station, Station Square, 601-1st Avenue, Fernie.

Tickets are available at The Arts Station, Freshies and Carosella.
