Filberg Heritage Lodge and Park hosts an entertaining festival each summer and after more than 30 years it is more popular than ever.

The three-day event invites 130 artists from the island and Canada to entertain and sell unique crafts, jewellery, pottery, textiles and art. Kids in tow always head first to the Enchanted Forest for face painting, story-telling, crafts and games. And everyone enjoys the array of food trucks that pull in from all parts of Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands.

Two stages are set up to host 15 bands and solo artists throughout the festival. Patrons are invited to pull up a chair and listen to old favourites of the folk scene, jazz performances and so much more.

The nine-acre Filberg Heritage Lodge and Park was once a luxurious estate but is now a breathtaking waterfront park with landscaped gardens and shady trees in the heart of Comox. The funds raised from the annual event help maintain the pristine setting.

Featured Artist

This year, the Filberg Festival is pleased to have Linda Skalenda as the featured artist. Linda is primarily a lanscape painter - except when she finds an interesting cow, seal or heron stealing her attention.

Without the distraction of cows, Linda's landscapes capture the excitment of a weather-twisted arbutus tree, startling rays of light in dense coastal rain forests and striking images of flowers caught bent in a breeze. Her paintings are rich in colour and emotion.

Entertainment Schedule

Along with beautiful art, the Filberg Festival is one of the best weekends to check out local and not-so-local talent on Vancouver Island. The park is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday - Sunday and 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. on Monday.
