The Island Music Fest
One of our personal favorites, the Island Music Fest is a three-day event that takes place in Courtenay and features a wide range of musical styles. The area’s premiere festival for eclectic music and a mix of local and international acts is a big draw for the island, and one of the most popular events on the calendar. It’s just one of the many rich cultural traditions that take place here. There’s a reason why they call us the Valley of the Festivals.
The Comox Community Market
The Comox Community Market is a family-friendly, fun, and completely local market that offers a great variety of different crafts, jewelry, health products, textiles, coffee and more. This weekend gathering is a social event for many people around the area, and you always see familiar faces. It’s a great place to support local vendors, meet up with friends, and enjoy the beautiful weekend weather.
