New Business of the Year - Rooftop Coffee Roasters

2020 Virtual Fernie Business Excellence Awards

We gathered virtually on October 23rd on Zoom to celebrate the best of the best in Fernie with awards recognizing outstanding achievements for businesses, non-profit organizations and individuals!

This year the Business Excellence Awards looked little different but we felt that now more than ever it was important to celebrate Fernie’s Businesses!

Over the last few months we have showed up with strength, creativity, resilience and poise. Thank you for embracing this year’s format and taking a moment to celebrate all of the businesses that make Fernie the diverse community it is!

We look forward to seeing what the coming year has in store for everyone and wish you all the best until next year!
