BC Seafood Festival, Comox Valley, BC
Shellfish lovers will not want to miss this seafood extravaganza. The Comox Valley on Vancouver Island produces 50% of all of British Columbia’s shellfish and the most oysters in all the country so they know how to deliver a top-notch seafood spread. The event, which draws some of the country’s best chefs, features dinners, tours, competitions and tastings over a 10-day period. Favorites include a shucking competition, a chowder challenge and a contest to see who makes the best Caesar drink. There are also plenty of family-focused activities like wildlife and cultural tours and whale watching expeditions. June 7-16, 2019.
