Discover countless Central Vancouver Island artists galleries and studios, over 140 annual events, and natural settings that will inspire your own creativity.
The Old School House Arts Centre (TOSH) in Qualicum Beach and the McMillan Arts Centre (MAC) in Parksville may be the cultural icons for our communities but don’t stop your artful exploring there.
There’s nothing quite like encountering an artist on his or her own home turf, cup of tea in one hand, paintbrush or chisel in the other. Self-guided studio tours of the region allow one to drop in unexpectedly on dozens of home-based studios and galleries. Parksville Qualicum Beach is home to one of the highest concentrations of artist and artisan studios in BC.
Parksville Qualicum Beach locals and Vancouver Island visitors alike eagerly anticipate the changing of the seasons, and not just because of weather and holidays. While Bard to Broadway packs the Village Theatre in the Summer, ECHO Players’ productions happen from Fall to Spring so there is almost always a show to catch.
