Two Day Arts & Culture Itinerary

September 7, 2022

Comox Valley Art Gallery

From beautiful First Nation creations to multiple museums, two days of the Comox Valley’s most creative corners.

This valley is full of history, and the art and culture of the Pacific Northwest can be seen and heard in every corner of the Comox Valley. But first, we eat.

Start your day at Bigfoot Donuts on 5th Street in downtown Courtenay, where donut worshippers line up, awaiting freshly made donuts and other savoury options, along with their delicious house blend Chai. Want a more traditional breakfast spot? The Hen and the Hog Café or Off Main are tasty spots serving an inviting atmosphere and a drool-worthy menu.

While enjoying your bennie, look into the schedule at Sid Williams Theatre, where some of the most incredible plays and concerts to hit the north-central Island run just the radar. Whether you’re a fan of music, theatre, comedy, or re-imagined holiday classics, you will find an intriguing live show! It’ll give you the energy you need to power through two days of exploring the full spectrum of attractions in the greater Comox Valley.

Start with the deep history and even deeper dinosaur bones (among other awesome things) at the Courtenay Museum & Paleontology Centre. This place is a cache of incredible artifacts and will set you up for a thorough understanding of the Valley’s history. When you’re done, lunch is close by at Gladstone’s Brewing Company, High Tide Public House or Nikkei Ramen-ya, all are within an easy walking distance.
