Must See Events

Top 5 Events in Comox Valley. Episode 6, October 2015

We're doing things a bit different in October 2015. Rather than a weekly video, we're bringing you the best events in sections. This month is JAM PACKED with seasonal specialties as well as other interesting action. So enjoy this October-long episode, and be on the lookout for more October episodes including a Halloween Special!

Watch the video here, or scroll down to read.
IMPORTANT: Beer Fest is sold out... Yeah, I know. We cried a little too.


Pumpkin Patch at Shamrock Farm

October 1st - 31st, 2015. At 2276 Anderton Road.

October 3rd - 31st, 2015. At 2186 Endall Road.

For a month that is entirely devoted to giant vegetables, there’s a lot of fun for kids and families in October. Maybe the best of all is the family fun set up by the local Shamrock Farms & Coastal Black. Both of these stunning estates are going all out to make October 2015 a memorable month. Hay mazes, petting zoos. I could go on forever talking about what’s great about each. But even better is to come see them yourself. Shamrock Farm details here. Coastal Black details here


6:30pm Friday, October 2nd, 2015. At the Native Sons Hall

Craft beer connoisseurs assemble. You are invited to an official tasting and tradeshow event along with 23 craft beer breweries. I am very happy about this event! $35 tickets get you 12 4oz tastings AND a souvenir mug. If that wasn’t good enough — the proceeds of this event are going toward renovating the Courtenay train station. Your taste buds will thank you. Your local breweries will thank you. And the whole community will thank you for your participation. Read more...


Rotary Club of Courtenay, 2015 Beer Fest


Foggy Mountain Fall Fair pie contests.

10am Saturday and Sunday, October 2nd and 3rd, 2015. At the Cumberland Museum and Archives.

There is a secret and magical place just beyond the highway exit 17 called “Cumberland.” It’s a place where people are friendly and familiar and happy to stop and have a chat. A place where you can eat well, and have a lot of fun. On October 2nd & 3rd, the Foggy Mountain Fall Fair happens in this mysterious land. There you can find everything you’d expect at a fall fair, including live music, variety shows and an abundance of delicious goodies. They’re celebrating their harvest and heritage and they’re inviting you. Read more...


5:30pm Saturday, October 10th, 2015, at Saratoga Speedway

This is one of the North Island’s biggest event of the year. And one of the most important events for North Island racers. It’s the championship event for every race class. It’s also the most fun racing event of the year with novelties like pumpkin racing and fireworks. If you have a friend or family member who’s into racing or if you’re just looking for a fun night with a great crowd, come out to support Saratoga Speedway as they end the season with a bang!
