The Moose on the Loose Festival was a temporary public arts festival in which artists presented a moose-themed installation in various Fernie locations. The festival spanned 5 months in 2021, with a new moose revealed each month. Moose artwork is created from different materials based on the artists’ preferred medium or in collaboration with other artists.

Each month, members of the Fernie community created their own moose-themed art pieces that are complementary to the larger installations. Fernie locals and visitors were encouraged to explore each location and try to find the moose on the loose! Bingo cards and scavenger hunts were supplied each month via our website to help participants find the art.  

We worked with various community partners to bring this project to life, and we hope it inspires people to explore some new areas in Fernie!
