Warm Up at WinterFest!

Posted by on Wednesday, January 18th, 2017 at 8:38am.

With Mount Washington Alpine Resort at our fingertips, the Comox Valley is the BEST place on Vancouver Island to experience winter. We celebrate winter each January with a two-week long community festival called WinterFest. This year the event runs from January 13 – 29 where event goers will enjoy daily activities, including skiing and skating, plus an awesome line-up of après, like live music and comedians! 

The WinterFest Fun Zone is the highlight for locals. Downtown Courtenay transforms into a winter wonderland with a skating rink, ice carving, family movie nights, buskers, hockey games and performances.

 The Fun Zone is on the corner of 5th and England and skating is by donation with all proceeds going to You Are Not Alone (YANA) and the Vancouver Island Mountain Sports Society (VIMSS).

The Fun Zone Hours:

Monday -Thursday, 4:00 – 7:00 pm

Friday, 4:00 – 8:00 pm

Saturday and Sunday, 12:00 – 6:00 pm


In addition to the events, there are a number of contests during WinterFest. On the Festival website, you can enter to win a ski and stay getaway in the Comox Valley, as well as a “Where’s the Snow Globe Contest” where participants guess where the snow globe is in the Comox Valley each day during WinterFest to be entered to win a full day family tubing pass to Mount Washington! Enter contests at: www.cvwinterfest.com/#contest
