Comox Nautical Days and Filberg Festival

Any of you PNWers planning to be in the upper Georgia Strait area at the end of July/early August are missing the deal of the year if you pass on these events.

Every August long Weekend in BC (first Monday in August) Comox has a Nautical Days festival loaded with entertainment, craft sales, daily dance bands, Elvis, all centered around the transient marina and nearby park. All of this is free, except for moorage at the very accommodating transient harbour on the east side of the pier.

Coincidental to this event is the Annual Filbert Festival, a short walk from the marina set on the venerable Filberg Estate grounds. Two music venues plus childrens' entertainment, juried crafts in a parklike setting on the water's edge. The main stage seats/stands 6-700 I'd say, and the more intimate Garden stage on the water about 150. Music acts are put on all day, 11-6, at both venues with 45 minute sets. Best of all, a $40 pass gets you into the fair for 4 days, all venues included. Day passes are $15 if you don't have the time.

It's also a good resupply stop with stores and pubs very nearby the docks. It really is a must-do.

So if you haven't made your plans firm, consider this event/area at that time!
