The festivities commence on Friday as we fire up the grill, open the bar, and kickoff with the first of 17 amazing and diverse musical acts gracing the gazebo stage, including: Leisure Club, Deep Sea Gypsies, The Choir, Zoubi and the Sea, Masala World Percussion, and DJ Waxstatic.
Saturday, June 18
We kick off Saturday with a pancake breakfast courtesy of the Fernwood Inn before commencing the Kidical Mass Bike Parade. The Field of Dreams will once again be providing some family-fun, and Senior's Tea is at the community centre for our more experienced patrons. Be sure to check out the Artisan Market with over 40 local vendors too!
The musical extravaganza continues with performances from Chance Lovett & The Broken Hearted, Tight Hair, Blackwood Kings, Johnny Dangus, Bučan Bučan, The Fernwood Coalition, Wise Child, Brothers in Farms, The Half Moon Shine, and Slim Sandy & the Hillbilly Boppers.
Thirsty? Hungry? Thirsty AGAIN?? We've got you covered with beer and soda from Phillips, cider from Merridale, and tasty bites being served hot off the BBQ! Benji Duke will once again assume the role of MC/spiritual guide for the festivities, with additional grooves being provided by DJ Coldbeef between sets.
This is shaping up to be one of the biggest and best FernFests yet, so we hope you can make it on down and join in this free summer solstice neighbourhood celebration!
