Set amongst the stately trees and gardens of the Filberg Heritage Lodge and Park in Comox, BC, the Filberg Festival is truly a unique event. Festival attendees enjoy art, music and nature surrounded by beautiful gardens, heritage buildings and magnificent views of Comox Harbour and the Beaufort Range. The Filberg Festival is set to take over Filberg Park this Summer during the August Long Weekend from Friday, August 4th to Sunday, August 6th. This year’s festival will be proud to once again feature a curated selection of over 100 talented artisans and makers of fine art in a variety of media ranging from metalwork, pottery, toys, woodcrafts, jewelry, paintings, glass, textiles and specialty foods.
The Festival is also renowned for its long-standing tradition of featuring exceptional Canadian talent in entertainment; this year is no exception. Its musical lineup is set to feature talent ranging from local to top recording artists. Attending the festival is a great way to discover new musicians or to just enjoy your favourite performers.
Filberg Festival is hosted by the Filberg Heritage Lodge and Park Association, which has the responsibility of restoring and maintaining the Filberg Heritage Lodge and Park’s site and buildings. In 1979, the lodge and surrounding acreage were designated as a municipal heritage site. The park is owned by the Town of Comox and has been operated by the non-profit Filberg Heritage Lodge and Park Association since its designation as a municipal heritage site.
Filberg Festival attendees can expect three full days of Artisans and Music, set in one of BC’s most beautiful event sites.
