Get a taste of B.C.’s seafood in Comox
June 7, 2018
Organizers of the B.C. Seafood Festival hope to establish it as the largest seafood festival in western Canada. It runs from June 8 to 17 at various venues in the Comox Valley.
Satellite events are being held this week in a lead up to the festival’s signature weekend next week.
The 10-day festival kicks off with a Deep Water Oyster Farm Tour, a 31⁄2-hour boat trip along Baynes Sound to Hollie Wood Oysters. Visitors will learn about oyster farming from the farm’s owners, as well as how to prepare and cook oysters by the chef on board.
The event costs $88 and runs from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Friday from the marina dock, 121 Port Augusta St., Comox.
Over the next seven days, you can also join a B.C. Salmon Farm Association tour, enjoy a four course pairing dinner, visit the B.C. Seafood Expo and take part in a Manatee Holdings hatchery tour.
On Saturday people can take in Dock Days, a guided walk of the Fisherman’s Wharf or Comox Valley Rocks for Kids 2018, an all day music festival in support of the Comox Valley Child Development Association.
