Fernie & Elk Valley Culture Guide Issue 4 - Spring 2017 - Page 15

Patio season From May to October, stroll Historic Downtown Fernie and enjoy the lively patio scene. Coffee shops, bars and restaurants along 2nd Avenue install wooden-decked patios complete with umbrellas and table service for relaxing over drinks or enjoying a meal with family and friends. Riverside patios can be found at the Bridge Bistro and the Stanford Resort or try a rooftop patio at The Curry Bowl. During the peak summer season include the patios at Island Lake Lodge and Fernie Alpine Resort. On four select Sundays in July and August, the Summer Socials turn Historic Downtown into a street- fair of family fun, shopping and entertainment. On Wednesday evenings enjoy live outdoor concerts at Station Square. 15
