Fernie & Elk Valley Pride Festival
Thank you everyone!
The Fernie Pride Society would like to thank you for your outstanding support of this year’s Fernie & Elk Valley Pride Festival. Building on the success of the past 2 years, the 2019 festival was a resounding success, hosting 16 events that attracted more than 1,000 participants.
Festival events were hosted for all age ranges and offered a wide choice of activities over the six days. This year through our Sassy and Saucy Silent Auction, we were able to raise almost $3000, which is being targeted to create a fund to help local LGBTQ youth attend summer camps.
Not only did the Festival attract almost 400 more participants in 2019, we also increased the number of facility/venue partners as well as attracting 35 community volunteers who provided over 100 hours helping us launch the festival.
So to all our venue partners, sponsors, volunteers, entertainers and attendees THANK YOU!
Watch for next year’s festival details in Summer 2020.
Our 2019 Guests
An awesome festival only comes together as the result of awesome volunteers. Please shoot us a message if you think you might have some time to help us out. Also let us know if you have a specific interest – being a guide for a bike ride – or a specific skill – an eye for decorating for a party. Your perks are being truly appreciated, receiving the coveted Volunteer t-shirt and having Sunday brunch on us.
