EVENTS

Once spring arrives, along with blooming Rhododendrons and nesting Herons, fairs and festivals are not far behind.

From the 'Round Bowen Challenge kayak race (Saturday, June 24, 2017) to the uniquely Bowen 'Dog Days' event celebrating Man's Best Friend in August, there's always something happening on the island.

Don't miss the weekend art markets in July and August, Steamship Days (July) or the distinctly Bowen Bowfest, a full day of music, arts, food and fun that starts with a parade and community floats at the end of August. (Specific dates will be posted in 2017.)
