    Festival Nanaimo is one sure way to put winter behind you and welcome spring. This fun community festival happening from March 8 to March 24, 2018, features food, theatre, music, walking and cycling tours and other sporting events. But there are plenty of surprises in store, too.    

  • Spring is the time to get out and explore and feed our awakening senses from the slumber of winter. There’s no better way to welcome the beauty and arrival of spring than to head to Nanaimo in March for Festival Nanaimo.      

    Along the western shoreline of Vancouver Island lies a rugged and wild region. Situated between Clayoquot Sound to the north and Barkley Sound to the south, this area has been home to the Nuu-chah-nulth-alt (people along the mountains) people for over 5,000 years. The Chief was responsible for everything he could see or touch, living or non-living from his people to the ocean and mountains. They valued the respect and connection to all life and where they called home. This connection is still alive and well through the Pacific Rim Whale Festival.
