Three Port Alberni events you’ll love this summer
Events on Vancouver Island, in chill places like Port Alberni, always have the added feelgood feature of coastal vibes and creative swell. Unlike the bigger Island travel destinations of Tofino or Victoria, Port Alberni has a more laidback local scene.
At the heart of the island, on one of the world’s longest ocean inlets, local events take on a different feel here.
Check out these summer and fall events, for a taste of the unique experience awaiting in Port Alberni.
