Hot towns – summer in the Valley!

Upcoming summer events to mark on your 2019 calendar


I know, it’s only May – but there is no time like the present to start planning for summer, especially when you live in the Comox Valley.


After all, there are so many things to do in this spectacular part of Vancouver Island, you need to draft a strategy early! Here are a bunch of events that you’ll want to take into consideration.


June

What better way to kick things off than with the BC Shellfish and Seafood Festival, held for 10 days in the middle of June and starting on the 7th this year. You’ll want to catch some part of Western Canada’s largest seafood festival.


Celebrate National Aboriginal Day on Friday, June 21st with the K’omoks First Nation at 3320 Comox Road. Traditional food, dance, song, arts and more will be showcased at this free event.    


July

Canada Day is always tonnes of fun in the Valley with the parade down Fifth Street and day-long activities at Lewis Park. Free entertainment and concerts are around almost every corner.


And, of course, Vancouver Island MusicFest takes centre stage on the second weekend of July; this year’s dates are the 12th to 14th. This three-day music festival is still going strong two decades later and promises to deliver an electric, eclectic line-up yet again.


The Denman Island Readers and Writers Festival takes place July 19-21. Known for its intimate scale and warm hospitality, the festival brings together the best BC writers with their devoted readers in a beautiful, natural setting.


August

August long weekend in the Valley means the Filberg Festival and Comox Nautical Days. So much happening along Comox’s sea-side setting – fun, fun, fun for the whole family.


On-going activities

Not sure you can plan out your dates yet? There are plenty of on-going activities through the summer, too, such as the Valley’s galleries, museums and local charters and tours. Plus, the award-winning Comox Valley Farmers’ Market runs on Saturdays at the Exhibition Grounds, Wednesdays in Downtown Courtenay and on Sundays in Cumberland through the summer.
