Community groups planning to hold summer events in Fernie could get some support from the City.
City staff are still accepting applications for limited funding to help develop and host festivals that impact tourism.
The funding is through the Resort Municipality Initiative’s Festival and Event Development Program.
Applicants need to show their proposed event would have a positive impact on the tourism economy in Fernie.
Community groups have until May 4th to apply and events need to be held at least two weeks after the deadline.
