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 over 100 artists from the island and across 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 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.
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.
