• Gold Fever Follies For 25 years the Rossland Gold Fever Follies has been going strong with original stories from Rossland’s rich gold mining history.

Showings are at 3 pm and 7:30 pm, Tuesday through Saturday. This year’s new show is called A job well done, a brand new comedy by Kate Eldridge with music by Harris Anderson.
