Situated on the doorstep of one of the most beautiful places in the world, Happy Holidays is the perfect "jumping off" point for your RV vacation adventure.
Whatever the season of the year or wherever your interests may lay, there's likely something the Sunshine Coast has to offer in terms of activities. From music to live theater, to annual festivals celebrating the arts, the events hold wide appeal and are attended by a wide spectrum of people from around the globe.
Spring welcomes the return of greenery and warmth, along with it a host of outdoor challenges in the form of half and full marathons, a challenging downhill mountain bike race, and an exciting long-board race. Seafood lovers will appreciate the Shellfish and Spot Prawn festivals in Lund and Powell River, respectively.
In the summertime, Gibsons Landing comes alive and takes to the open air in the form of street music and an artisan marketplace. The season also offers many treats for music lovers: the Pender Harbour Blues Festival and the Gibsons Landing Jazz Festival in June, The Sunshine Music Festival on the Labor Day weekend, and The Pender Harbour Jazz Festival in September, just to name a few. Guests of The Festival of the Written Arts enjoy readings and workshops presented by noted Canadian authors. There are local fairs to take in such as the Sea Cavalcade in Gibsons, the Powell River Sea Fair in July, and The Blackberry Festival in Powell River which takes place in August. Shopping is also a highlight for many visitors and locals alike, with beautiful, locally handcrafted jewelry, soaps, clothing, wood crafts, art, and other items available at artisan markets and the many shops to explore in the town centers.
Fall can be a beautiful time of the year on the Sunshine Coast with the warm weather extending into October. The season brings with it the Gibsons Fall Fair, the Sechelt Arts Festival, The Art Crawl, and the Salmon Festival.
