just for fun
From summer street festivals to the annual Silly Boat Regatta and World’s Biggest Bathtub Race, we’ve got all the weird and fun things covered downtown.
From Farmers Markets to Corner Concerts, Downtown Nanaimo is working its way out of Covid conditions to get back to celebrating. Saturday Morning Farmers Markets continue in-season, and all summer long Downtown Nanaimo presents music at two corners downtown during the lunch hours – Friday through Sunday.
Downtown is also the jumping off point to Saysutshun (Newcastle Island), Protection Island (home of Canada’s only floating pub), and Gabriola Island – center for arts, culture and artisan studios.
