Vancouver Island Arts / Culture / Entertainment
The Parksville and Qualicum Beach region of Vancouver Island, BC offers countless galleries and studios, over 140 annual events, and a myriad of natural settings that will inspire your own creativity. Immerse yourself in pioneer life at Craig Heritage Park and prehistoric fossils at the Qualicum Beach Museum. The curtain rises every summer evening at Bard to Broadway's
summer repertory theatre.
Hidden away in cottages and country houses, cabins and converted garages throughout the region are wonderfully talented artists and crafts people. Oceanside is home to one of the highest concentrations of artist and artisan studios in BC. Search them out on your own or stop by a Visitor Centre and pick-up the Blue Brochure full of self-guided tours.
