You won’t want to miss any of the events happening around Parksville this B.C. Day Long Weekend!

Check out the Coombs Bluegrass Festival from Thursday, August 2nd to Sunday, August 5th. Enjoy slow pitch jams, an instrument raffle, & numerous workshops on how to play bluegrass or your instrument.

The Oceanside Overdrive Car Show is happening all day on Beachside Drive on August 5th. This is one of the biggest car events on the Island, with nearly 400 cars and about 8,000 car fans who come down to Parksville Beach every year. There will be food vendors, car-affiliated vendors, and a D.J. playing classic car tunes throughout the day.

Also, don’t forget about the Quality Foods Canadian Open Sand Sculpting Competition and Exhibition that will be happening until August 19th. Be sure to bring your camera to this amazing event as the sculptures won’t be here forever! The exhibition is located in Parksville’s Community Park, next to the Lion’s Venture Land Playground and Water Spray Park.
