Fernie Alpine Resort is known for throwing some epic parties, however the annual Fernival festival is one of the favourites for adults & kids! Join us on Saturday for Live music, openers are Cumberland followed up with the Main Act, Canadian Music Legends, CHILLIWACK! “Chilliwack are a Canadian rock band that had their heyday during the 1970s and 1980s. They are perhaps best remembered for their five biggest songs “My Girl (Gone Gone Gone)”, “I Believe”, “Whatcha Gonna Do”, “Fly At Night” and “Lonesome Mary”. The band’s lineup has changed numerous times, though Bill Henderson has constantly remained a fixture, and Chilliwack continues to tour across Canada.”
