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 8, 2019) 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 changing art exhibits, weekend music at the Pub and Doc's, and Bowen Island's uniquely Bowen "Bowfest," a full day of music, arts, food and fun that starts with a parade down the main street in Snug Cove.
