The Parksville and District Chamber of Commerce invites you to come and experience the excitement of downtown Parksville’s annual Summer by the Sea Street Market being held every Tuesday night from mid June to the 1st of September, from 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm.

Over 150 exceptional artisans offer everything from wrought iron work, rock candles to wooden toys; we definitely have something for everyone.

Hawkins Family Vacation 2015

Posted in Visitor Centre

We are happy to share this family's vacation video, showcasing this very special place we call home:  

"We made our fourth trip to Parksville in 5 years, just a few weeks ago. I was able to make a little family video of our time on the beach there (and a little bit from Miracle Beach as well) and wanted to share it with you. Hope you enjoy it!"  https://vimeo.com/137647110
