COVID-19 is what’s happening, as you are aware. All the festivals this summer have pretty much been cancelled.
As the province slowly starts to open up, we will attempt to keep you up to date.
Be Calm. Be Kind. Be Safe.
Local retailers are starting to open their doors. The hours of operation may be different and how you shop will be different.
Check with your favourite shops to see what their policies are, and give them support if you are able.
Most restaurants in town are offering take out menus, even some that do not ordinarily do so. Some restaurants and cafes are opening with limited seating and hours. Again, check with the individual establishment.

I recently spent a few weeks in downtown Vancouver. It’s a big city and there is lots to do. Site seeing opportunities are everywhere and I walked a lot. Along the seawall from Science Centre to Granville Island, along the streets to parks and galleries. But there is...
We have a large community of artists in our midst: painters, potters, sculptors, writers and musicians — all evident at our annual festivals. Plan your visit to take in one of our many fabulous festivals so you can indulge the artist in you.
Our natural environment is the perfect backdrop for sporting activities. Aside from many charitable marathon runs that we host, there are a couple major events that may interest you.
