Take the Traveller Quiz Super, Natural British Columbia

Whales, flowers, music, art, wine, birds, oysters, boats, beaches, the harvest, books, beer, salmon, Christmas lights, cars, chili, apples, fishing — in the Vancouver Island region, we celebrate everything we love! Concerts, theatre, music, dance, team sports, international competitions, and a raft of maritime events — it’s all here.

Many of our festivals are ideal for families — the Pacific Rim Whale Festival, Tidemark Children’s Festival, Nanaimo Marine Festival and World Championship Bathtub Races, National Aboriginal Day, Parksville Beach Festival, and Kidsfest.
