Nanaimo

  • Whether you are gearing up for a White Christmas in Calgary, a green one on Vancouver Island, or are lucky enough to experience a combination of both, the holiday season evokes a magical air of cheer, wonder, and good tidings.

  • 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.

    The fourth annual Festival Nanaimo happens from March 1 to 31 throughout the city.

  • Nanaimo’s history could be summed up with just a few words: “Bathtubs and Black Stones,” which is fittingly the name of a musical review and stage performance coming up this summer.
