Celebrate Comox Nautical Days’ 65th Anniversary! August 5-7 2023 in Marina Park!

Many of your perennial favourites are returning; the BC Day Parade along with the Comox Nautical Days Vintage Car Show. There are rides, games and crafts for the kids and the Rotary Splash Park and Playground is sure to be a big hit.

While at the Festival take time to shop the more than 100+ craft booths and quench your appetite at the fabulous food trucks. Those who are “of an age” can enjoy a frosty beverage at the VI Society for Adaptive Snow Sports Bistro Garden. Nautical Days would not be Nautical Days without the Quality Foods Festival of Lights Fireworks Extravaganza on Monday night.

There’s truly something for everyone at the 2023 Comox Nautical Days “Free Festival of Family Fun”. Join the fun August 5-7 at Comox Marina Park!

We are currently looking for volunteers to help with the bike lock-up, recycling station, and information booth. If you’d like to help out, email nauticaldays2@gmail.com.
