The Arts Station and an invaluable team of local volunteers produce the Wednesday Concert Series. Going in to its 8th year, the volunteer team behind this essential Fernie summer staple makes these events possible. The Arts Station would also like to thank the Resort Municipality Initiative, British Columbia Arts Council, the Columbia Basin Trust, the Park Place Lodge, Fernie Brewing Company, Summit Fund, Edward Jones, Finning, Teck and Wapiti for their ongoing support.
