Attention Artisans of Parksville Qualicum Beach Region!
We are in the process of designing our brand-new Self Guided Artisan Tour for the region to run from Sunday May 12th to Sunday September 8th 2024.
All artisans with fixed locations from Nanoose Bay to Bowser are invited and welcome to apply. The brochure will list upward of 20 + artisans and be available for pick up by thousands of visitors at the Parksville and Qualicum Beach Visitor Centres, local resorts, various Oceanside businesses and by email to print at home.
Bonus advertising will be promoted on Parksville & District Chamber of Commerce marketing resources; PQB News, The Beach and The Lounge Radio and Parksville Qualicum Beach Tourism Association website.
Each business will be asked to supply a business name, address, contact information and regular opening times. We will require details about your products or service, reason for hoping to be part of the program and whether you charge an admission fee, are open to the public, require an appointment etc. and any other relevant information.
Submissions will be accepted on Friday December 1st until Monday February 12th and chosen dependant on the popularity of the project and variety of genres of art etc.

Heroes, Heroines & Villains were among the guests all decked out for a special night out at the Parksville & District Chamber of Commerce's signature event, the 39th annual Gala dinner and auction. Guests participated in a very successful live auction, silent auction and games of chance, capping off the evening with dancing to tunes "spun" by Rockin Donny T. Successful bidders left smiling with some amazing gifts generously donated by our local businesses. It was a great opportunity to catch up with old friends or make some new ones.
The Gala is the Chamber's premier fundraising event and funds from the Gala help the Chamber deliver programs into the community like the Canada Day celebrations, the Business Excellence Awards, secondary school scholarships and the Summer by the Sea Street Market, as well as year-round operation of the Parksville Visitor Centre.
We would like to thank all of our sponsors for their contributions to our event. The evening was successful again this year, thanks to the generosity of our donors and guests. Please consider these fine businesses when you are shopping for a product or service:
