Nanaimo August Events

Nanaimo August Events

Nanaimo has brought you great events this fabulous summer of 2013 so far. June's Dragon Boat Festival and July's Marine Festival and Bathtub Race were big hits as always. Hopefully, you were able to make it out to those events and if not, they're annual! So, mark your calendars for next year! However, summer is not yet over and Nanaimo events in August are here to prove it! Check out what's happening: 

Free Concerts in the Park every Sunday through August at Maffeo-Sutton Park at the Lions Band Shell. 

Cemetery Strolls every Thursday night you can enjoy a guided tour through the local cemetery and hear great stories from the locals. Contact the Nanaimo Museum for more information. 

Symphony in the Harbor is held every August with the Vancouver Island Symphony presenting a free outdoor concert in the new band shell located in Maffeo-Sutton Park.

Chowder Fest Cook Off  is an annual event held during the first week of August. Come experience the best bowl in Nanaimo!

Vancouver Island Exhibition is the third week in August. This fair started over 100 years ago and is now an annual event to advance the education of agriculture and to show case local farmers and 4-H clubs. There are some professionals showing at the fairs, but it's always the children that are really impressive. 

A hot bowl of local chowder and a scary stroll through the cemetery taking in the history of Nanaimo sounds like a pretty good day! If it sounds that way to you too, and you'd like more information on playing and living in Nanaimo, contact
