How can businesses get involved with these events?

  • Show some Fernie spirit by creating a Canada Day window display. Get super festive by featuring red maple leafs, or by show casing red clothing, books, flowers or anything red you might carry.
  • Encourage visitors in the Fernie to attend Canada Day. 
  • The Canada Day fesivities are confinded to the Fernie Aquatic Centre, however, many attendees stroll downtown for a change of scene. So having options that people can stroll around with are a must have.
    • Grab and go options
    • Iced drinks or smoothies
    • Classic Canadian meals, or festive colored treats.
  • Provide a special shopping deal or host activity for event. Promote the event by extending offers for staff and clients to attend. Here are some examples:
    • No sales tax
    • 10% a winter item like popsicles or sunscreen
    • Feature goods made in Fernie
    • Feature festival/event theme products at your store. What better to sell on Canada Day than things featuring the maple leaf?
