Celebrate 30 Years Of the Filberg Festival
Some things are synonymous with summer: ice cream cones, the scent of sunscreen and days spent at the beach. For me it’s the annual Filberg Festival. Only a few weeks away, the Festival is set to celebrate its 30th year in the Comox Valley.
Each year the stunning Filberg Park showcases exceptional artisans, musicians and culinary creators in a sunny setting overlooking the Comox Glacier. Where else can you collect a unique piece of pottery, listen to fantastic music and nosh on a frozen chocolate banana all in one place?
Apart from the wide-range of weavers, potters, skin care companies, food products, painters and more, the entertainment is always something Filberg Festival-goers look forward to. 2012’s line-up will not disappoint. Amongst those confirmed for this year:
- Babe Gurr
- Dave Harris
- Flora Scott Trio
- High Bar Gang
- Michael Kaeshammer
- Spirit of the West
As in past years, the Filberg Festival is held over the August Long Weekend and this year runs August 3rd through 6th. While I recommend you save the dates and grab your tickets now, the Festival organizers have graciously offered up four pairs of one-day passes to hand out to some of my readers.
You have up to three ways to win your way in:
1. Leave a comment below and tell me what you’d most like to see at the Filberg Festival. (1 entry)
2. Post the following on Twitter: (1 entry)
3. Visit my Facebook page and leave a note on the Wall, telling me about your favourite Filberg Festival memory. (1 entry)
