Fernie Forge is participating in the Columbia Basin Culture Tour for the third year.

The forge is not normally open to visitors (except by appointment), but for two days
Saturday and Sunday, August 13th and 14th, 2011 from 10:00am – 5:00pm
Blacksmiths Sandra and David Barrett invite you to visit them
at 2087 Highway #3 in historic Hosmer, a 10 minute drive East of Fernie
as part of this free, self-guided cultural event.

This year will include forging demonstrations of creatures commissioned for the Miners’ Walk Exhibit outside Fernie City Hall. Come to Fernie Forge and take a sneak peek at the creepy crawlies (including ants, snails and a spider) to be installed for children to find on the walk.
