WELCOME TO POWELL RIVER

EARLS COVE TO SALTERY BAY FERRY ANDREW STRAIN

RAIN OR SHINE, THIS PLACE WILL AMAZE YOU Powell River is located 170 kilometres north of Vancouver, as the crow flies. The fastest way to get here is by airplane. Pacific Coastal Airlines operates daily service out of Vancouver, with a flight time of approximately 25 minutes. Our coastal community is also accessible by car or daily bus service, using a scenic combination of ferries and highways. Some people visit by pleasure boat, stopping

in at the various marinas, government wharfs and marine parks located in the immediate vicinity. Some take a circle route, arriving in Powell River from Vancouver via Sechelt Peninsula, before departing to Comox on Vancouver Island and continuing on with their journey. Others never leave, heading to the nearest real estate office with their down payment in hand.

Tla'amin Nation traditional territory Powell River is located on the territories of the indigenous Coast Salish. Tla’amin Nation people have been stewards of these lands for thousands of years. We encourage you to honour their culture and learn about their traditions during your visit.

THE ART CENTRE | AGGREGATES - LUKE RAMSEY AND MAX CHIASSON

Powell River may have been founded upon industry, but creative culture has been the city’s heartbeat since the very beginning. Whether you’re a fan of music, film, art, theatre or other, the region is positively brimming with creativity thanks to a healthy community of artists and those who appreciate their work. Visual Arts

Several renowned visual artists have chosen to make their homes and studios in Powell River, favouring the area for its laid-back atmosphere and exquisite beauty. Organizations such as the Malaspina Art Society and Powell Riv-

er Council for Arts, Culture exist to promote and preserve the creative richness among us. Home studios come alive every August during the Powell River Studio Tour, and works are sold year-round at Artique, Wind Spirit Gallery, Rare Earth Pottery, Tug Ghum Gallery, Turadh Fine Art, Studio Curious, Dancing Tree Gallery and Gallery on Dogwood in Van Anda. A beautiful showcase space, known as The Art Centre Public Gallery, opened in early 2018 above Powell River Public Library and hosts a contemporary non-commercial exhibitions throughout the year. Other public venues, including Vancouver Island University, Coastal Cookery, Magpie’s Diner, Little Hut Curry and The Old Courthouse Inn, have also filled their walls with local art.

Performing Arts

PRISMA | ANDY RICE

Locally raised musicians, dancers and actors have taken their training to lofty heights on the world stage. Dancer Onna White was nominated for a Tony award for her work as choreographer of the movie Oliver! Multi-instrumentalist Don Thompson won three Juno Awards as one of Canada’s premiere jazz musicians. Tla'amin Nation's Evan Adams garnered worldwide recognition for his starring roles in Smoke Signals and The Business of Fancydancing. In 2004, Powell River was designated a Cultural Capital of Canada by the Department of Canadian Heritage and events such as International Choral Kathaumixw and Pacific Region International Summer Music Academy (PRISMA) have only furthered the city’s reputation as a destination for music and the arts. Since 1981, Powell River Academy of Music has been training singers and instrumentalists of all ages and ability levels, while other institutions, such as the Laszlo Tamasik Dance Academy, Far Off Broadway and Theatre Now, have further shaped the cultural landscape and created additional opportunities for creative expression.

DIVING

DIVING MERMAID COVE, SALTERY BAY PROVINCIAL PARK | DARREN ROBINSON PHOTOGRAPHY

More than 100 colourful dive sites make Powell River a contender on the world’s scuba scene. In fact, back in 2004, renowned explorer Jacques Cousteau told Scuba Diving Magazine that the region could easily give the Red Sea a run for its money. One-of-a-kind attractions include the Hulks, anchored near the mill, and the bronze Emerald Princess sculpture off the shores of Saltery Bay. A myriad of shipwrecks beckon adventurers all along the coastline. Advanced divers will enjoy

depths of more than 60 metres in some areas, with plenty of exciting walls and cliffs to complement the colourful marine life on display. YOGN 82, down for just one year, once one of Powell River's historic breakwater hulks, is a good dive for all divers to establish an early days visual baseline for growth as reef matures. It is a great reason to come to Powell River. While here, dive some of the other great shore and boat access walls, reefscapes and wrecks we are blessed with.

WILLINGDON BEACH PIER | ANJI SMITH

Powell River offers a wide array of swimming spots to help you beat the summer heat. Hands down, the most accessible are Willingdon Beach and Mowat Bay, both with ample parking just minutes from the centre of town. Haywire Bay, Gibson’s Beach and Second Beach take a little more effort to find but are worth it every time. For more secluded options, try Hammil (West) Lake, Inland Lake or Eagle River. If sandy shores are what you’re looking for, head south of town to Donkersley, Mahood and Palm beaches. Beach access signs can be found all along the highway, or stop by the Visitor Centre and let its friendly staff point you in the right direction.

TIP FROM A LOCAL A great place to go swimming in Lund is less than a five-minute walk away. From the wooden boardwalk, climb the cement steps, then continue to the Beach Access sign. Facing south, the water gets quite warm in the summer and the sunbaked rocks host all manner of living sea creatures beneath the waves. Bring a snorkel and mask for best viewing. – Ann Snow

Whether you are sailing through open water in the Strait of Georgia or finding refuge in the sparkling stillness of Desolation Sound, Powell River is truly a boater’s dream come true. Guest moorage can be found in Powell River at Beach Gardens Resort and Marina, Westview Harbour, Lund Harbour and Okeover Harbour, and at Sturt Bay on Texada Island. The area offers much in the way of freshwater boating as well, with dozens of accessible lakes that are ideal for powered and unpowered watercraft. Be sure to stop by the Powell River Visitor Centre on Joyce Avenue for a full list, and to learn more about the amenities and scenic views that surround them.

Kayaking

Put your paddle in the water and explore our coastal paradise from a new perspective. The ocean waters that surround Powell River are some of the calmest due to the shelter provided by nearby islands. Desolation Sound and the Copeland Islands are a must-see. These two marine parks are accessible from Lund or Okeover Arm, abundant with sea

stars, sea urchins, sea anemones, and sea cucumbers. Or, put in near the mill and see the Hulks up close. Powell Lake is a fresh-water option closer to the town centre, one of 36 named lakes in the region, with more than 400 kilometres of shoreline to discover.

Canoeing

There is much to discover by navigating the waters near Texada, Savary, Ahgykson (formerly Harwood) and Mitlenatch Islands, as the Tla’amin people have done for thousands of years. However, there is even more canoeing to be found inland. The world-renowned Powell Forest Canoe Route is a scenic journey stretching 57 kilometres from Lois Lake to the Shinglemill. This trek can be completed in approximately five days with five portages and multiple camping stops along the way. Each of the eight lakes on this route are accessible by an active logging road as a shorter paddling excursion. For more information, visit canoeingbc.com.

FISHING

POWELL RIVER FISHING | JIMMY JACK CHARTERS

From crabs to coho, Powell River offers a nautical bounty that is within easy reach. Cast a line from one of two piers in the heart of Westview or fire up your motor and head toward popular destinations such as Grant Reefs, Sarah Point and the Iron Mines. Prime time lasts from May until early fall as local salmon are joined by migrating fish. Cutthroat trout are abundant in most freshwater areas and Lois Lake has been known to yield landlocked steelhead weighing up to 15 pounds. The area’s oysters, clams, geoducks and prawns are all top-notch, and many hotspots are located quite close to one another, providing a full day’s worth of fishing fun.

Hunting

The upper Sunshine Coast offers excellent hunting opportunities, both on the mainland and nearby islands. Texada Island is especially popular due to an absence of predators and an abundance of blacktailed deer. An extended season is available for bowhunters and most bed and breakfasts there are hunter-friendly. Powell River's backcountry offers larger prey, including prized Roosevelt elk. Those with a BC hunter number can enter a yearly lottery for the coveted chance to harvest one. For your safety, and the safety of others out in the wilderness, be sure to familiarize yourself with all restrictions, regulations and outof-bounds areas.

Powell River may not be a permanent residence for whales and dolphins but the area is certainly one of their favourite places to eat. Sometimes, this means they can be spotted near the mill; other times at Myrtle Rocks. Humpbacks favour the areas between Coho Point and Vivian Island while dolphins prefer to forage closer to the shore, along parts of Texada Island. Orcas, grey whales, Dall’s porpoise and harbour porpoise are common sights as well. Hang out long enough at Willingdon Beach, the sea walk, Westview or Townsite viewpoints and you’re bound to see a few of these magnificent creatures breeching off in the distance.

Wildlife and Birdwatching

From owls to ospreys, the Powell River area is alive with many exciting bird species to observe and photograph. Last year, the area received a rare treat when a Costa’s hummingbird took up residence in the garden near Donkersley Beach. Birdwatchers flew in from far and wide to catch a glimpse. Other species, such as loons, osprey, marbled murrelets, harlequins, cormorants and scooters, are a bit more common. However, bald eagles and great blue herons are by far the area’s most prevalent species and can be spotted daily along Marine Avenue and the sea walk. Even the crows and seagulls look special in our coastal paradise. In addition to birds, the region is flush with wildlife, both on land and in the ocean and surrounding lakes. Orcas, Pacific white-sided dolphins, sea otters, harbour seals and Stellar sea lions patrol the oceans, while cougars and black bears share the backcountry with deer, and the multitude of furry squirrels and beavers that populate areas along trails, lakes and rivers.

But did you know this popular business district is flanked by two beautiful pathways right by the water’s edge? The sea walk can be tackled in under an hour with views of the Strait of Georgia and the busy Westview harbour. Willingdon Beach Trail offers a similar duration with a woodland setting that is home to many species of plants and animals.

Stand up paddling, or SUP, is thought to have originated in Polynesia in the 16th century, although the concept of standing on floating material and propelling through the water with a paddle is undoubtedly much older than that. For Powell River residents, visitors and avid stand up paddlers alike, the sport provides a level of ease and accessibility. You can now rent SUP conveniently at Willingdon Beach from Stillwater Paddleboards.

WINTER FUN

Sunshine Coast’s mild climate allows for year-round enjoyment of mountain biking, ATVing, scuba diving, fishing, boating, golfing and hiking. A healthy local obsession with ice sports means there is plenty to do inside as well, with hockey and curling taking top priority at the local rinks. In recent years, Knuckleheads Winter Recreation Area has become more accessible to alpine enthusiasts than ever before. Two hours and a pair of snowshoes are typically all it takes to reach higher elevations with plenty of powder for skiing, sledding and even snowmobiling.

DESOLATION SOUND What Desolation Sound Marine Provincial Park lacks in name it makes up for in sheer beauty. Located 32 kilometres north of Powell River, the park is comprised of a series of islands, coves and inlets that are sheltered from the elements due to their unique location. These warm, deep waters are revered among swimmers, kayakers and scuba

divers, who find much to discover within. The sound is also frequented by yachters, who anchor their vessels to marvel at the natural wonders known as Prideaux Haven, Tenedos Bay and Grace Harbour. Desolation Sound is BC’s largest marine park, measuring 8,449 hectares in total with over 60 kilometres of unforgettable coastline to explore.

SAVARY ISLAND

SAVARY ISLAND | SUNSET AT INDIAN POINT | GETTY IMAGES

Surounded by warm waters and golden sandy beaches, Savary Island has often been called the “Hawaii of the North.” The government dock is accessible by float plane, boat or water taxi from Lund Harbour. Nearly all property is under private ownership, but the beaches and access roads are public and there are plenty of opportunities to rent your own little slice of paradise during the summer months. This unique, crescent-shaped island is loved by residents for its tropical feel and laid-back vibe. In the summer its population can balloon from 100 to 2,000 or more. Fair warning: the area does command a little extra preparation due to the mixture of private and public spaces to be found there, so it is important to do your homework before arriving. For example, Savary’s star attractions, Indian Point and South Beach, are not what greet you when you arrive at the wharf. Come prepared with a map or reach out to Ron at savarytours.com for a guided experience of the Island.

Lund

Best known today as the gateway to Desolation Sound and the Copeland Islands, Lund found its origins in 1889 as a rugged fishing village. It received its name following the arrival of the Swedish Thulin brothers who built the Lund Hotel in 1905. The building still stands today as a testament to their craftsmanship and overlooks a bustling harbour and busy government wharf. Recent renovations have transformed the space into a place reflective of the first nations history that surrounds it and is now the award-winning Lund Resort at Klah Ah Men. The building is home to a pub and art gallery, along with several dining establishments and retail shops nearby. Lund is also the home base for Lund Water Taxi, with daily service to Savary Island. Don’t miss the 13th annual Lund Seafood Festival, May 22 to 24, with live music, artisans, cooking demonstrations and a chowder challenge. And make sure to get a photo with the Mile 0 monument, which marks the start of Highway 101, a 24,000-kilometre stretch of road that runs all the way south to Quellón, Chile.

TLA'AMIN NATION Tla’amin Nation

tiskʷat Powell River is located on the territories of the Coast Salish, where indigenous peoples have lived harmoniously with these lands for thousands of years. We encourage you to honour their culture and learn about their traditions during your visit. From Lang Bay to Bute Inlet, the Tla’amin has fostered a deep connection with the area and its abundant resources. Archaeological sites around Powell River, Texada, Ahgykson (formerly ʔagayqsən Harwood Island) and Okeover show significant activity that we are only beginning to comprehend as time goes on. The mill site and dam are located atop the original settlement of the Tla’amin people, an area known as Tiys’ Kwat, or “big river.” Prior to the 1870s, this land was used for habitation and spiritual activities by the Tla'amin Coast Salish, whose population was estimated to have been between 4,000 to 5,000 people. The current Tla’amin village site, called Tishosem, is located between Wildwood and Lund, and is presently home to 1,000 residents. A treaty agreement that took effect in

PULLING TOGETHER | MICHELLE PENNELL

April 2016 was a major milestone for the now-self-governing Tla’amin Nation, representing a confirmation of land and resource rights and the return of 8,323 hectares of territory. As a symbol of significant ancestral, historical and cultural events, including the treaty, you will find several totem poles standing proud in the Powell River area. Most prominently, they can be spotted in Westview at the viewpoint on Marine Avenue and Ajoomixw Park on Wharf Street, at the viewpoint in Townsite and outside the new Government House building in Tla’amin. The Tla’amin Nation put it’s name forward to host the 2021 Tribal Journeys event back in 2018. Since then, have been planning rigorously to make sure the event is a success. Over the last couple of years Tribal Journey has been growing quite large. In 2018, 116 Canoes reached the shores of the Puyallup Tribe near Tacoma, Washington. The event draws 5000-10,000 people annually. With Powell River being a more isolated community, there are roughly 5000 people expected to reach our shores in July 2021.

HISTORIC TOWNSITE | PAUL KAMON

TOWNSITE Townsite

Over the course of its 109-year history, Powell River’s historic Townsite has been home to many British Columbia firsts: the first medical plan, first credit union, first rotary-dial telephone and first radio telephone to name a few. All were important infrastructure that bolstered the Powell River Company’s booming pulp and paper operations. In its heyday, the mill was the largest such facility in existence, employing nearly 3,000 workers and supplying four per cent of the world’s newsprint. Although the mill’s original footprint has changed significantly since 1910, Catalyst Paper Corporation employs nearly 400 residents today. The surrounding area features 12 surviving commercial buildings and 400 private homes, all constructed between 1910 and 1930 as Powell River Company set up and expanded its operations. Much of Townsite’s original architecture was built in the Arts and Crafts bungalow or Tudor Revival style, save for a few noticeable exceptions. These days, many of the original civic services have moved to Westview and made way for new establishments such as Townsite Brewing, The Old Courthouse Inn and Townsite Market. Dwight Hall, the extravagant company ballroom, has stayed true to its original usage and still plays

host to dozens of concerts, weddings and events each year. The same can be said for The Patricia Theatre, Canada’s longest continuously operating movie house. Townsite Heritage Society has put together a beautiful map containing 17 points of interest, all within walking distance of each other. Be sure to pick one up at the Visitor Centre and enjoy a few hours of exploring on your own, or book a guided tour during the summer months.

Cranberry

Cute and colourful, Cranberry is the ideal place for a swim, hike or weekend brunch. All amenities are just a stone’s throw from one another, making it a great area of the city to explore on foot. Grabbing a bite at Magpie’s Diner is a must, followed by a scenic climb to the top of Valentine Mountain or a dip in the calm blue waters of Mowat Bay. Bring a picnic basket to Lindsay Park for a peaceful snack overlooking Cranberry Lake, or continue on to Haywire Bay and Inland Lake, easily accessible via nearby Haslam Road. The former boasts a 48-site campground while the latter offers a 13-kilometre wheelchair accessible path along the shoreline.

HULKS

THE HULKS | BETH RAND

Get up close and personal with the mill’s famous breakwater. An arc of former unpowered ferro-cement supply barges, each with its own unique story to tell. Most of the current vessels date back to the World War II era but the longest, SS Peralta, was built in 1921 and is the last American-built concrete ship still afloat. Three are slated to begin a new chapter as artificial reefs in the coming years, joining YOGN 82, so make sure to get plenty of photos before they sink. The hulks are viewed best from the Townsite viewpoint on Marine Avenue; up a block, beside the Lawn Bowling Club; or from the shores of Second Beach.

Wildwood is located just to the north of Powell River’s Historic Townsite neighbourhood, connected by a bridge that spans a lakeside area known as the Shinglemill. The facility produced cedar shakes for more than 40 years, beginning in 1913. Today, it is a popular restaurant and marina where many go to watch the boats going by. Up the hill you will find fertile farmland and many popular hiking trails, including those leading to Scout Mountain. Accessible via the end of Sutherland Street and conquered in under an hour, this day hike pays handsomely with panoramic ocean views. The newly renovated Wildwood Public House will be the perfect place to quench your thirst after a hike, serving up an assortment of brews.

Marine Avenue

Take a stroll onto the Westview Wharf, or head south along the sea walk to watch the whales and harbour seals go by. The stretch of Marine Avenue between the ferry terminal and Alberni Street is home to many shops, galleries and cafés, each with their own local charm. Enjoy a meal overlooking the glistening Strait of Georgia or head to Willingdon Beach to take in one of the technicolour sunsets our area has become famous for. This popular park and campground becomes a mecca for community events during the summer, from the exhilarating BC Bike Race to the symphonic extravaganza known as PRISMA on the Beach. The nearby Willingdon Beach Trail offers a historical treat with a steam donkey, sidewinder and other forestry relics remaining from its bygone days. Just across the highway is a mini-golf course and museum, as well as Millennium Park, an unspoiled forest oasis with dozens of trails to walk and explore. Along the edges of nearby Willingdon Creek sit statues of Popeye, Olive Oyl and Wimpy, which began as larger-thanlife parade floats, now preserved for decades of enjoyment.

Joyce Avenue

Joyce Avenue is home to the Town Centre Mall, as well as a hotel, grocery stores, gas stations, restaurants and big box stores. Crossroads Village Shopping Centre provides additional retail and dining options, alongside the Powell River Public Library. The bright and sunny 17,000-square-foot facility is a delight to residents and visitors who pop in to browse the 50,000 titles on display. Fans of athletics, aquatics and the arts will find much to do at Powell River Recreation Complex, accessible from Joyce Avenue by road and by the McGuffie Creek Pedestrian Bridge. There you will find Hap Parker Arena, home to the Powell River Kings Junior A hockey team; and Evergreen Theatre, which plays host to many local and touring performances each year. The complex is also home to another ice surface, a 25-metre lap pool, hot tub, fitness centre, several multipurpose rooms and an outdoor bike and skateboard park.

Many beach access points can be found along this scenic stretch of Highway 101, including Saltery Bay Provincial Park and Picnic Site, Palm Beach, Myrtle Rocks and more. Mermaid Cove is known worldwide for its nine-foot bronze mermaid statue that tantalizes divers at 20-metre depths below. Access to Powell Forest Canoe Route and Stillwater Bluffs can be found nearby, along with Eagle River, a hidden gem that boasts a natural waterfall and glorious canyons. Lang Creek Salmon Hatchery is a breathtaking place to watch the bears eat their dinner during the annual salmon run, with ample parking at the roadside. For golf enthusiasts, why not pack your clubs and play a round of golf at the 18-hole, Les Furber-designed Myrtle Point Golf Club? Or, if biking and hiking are more your speed, visit nearby Duck Lake Road for convenient access to multi-use trails.

Paradise Valley

One of Powell River’s best-kept secrets lies just beyond the city centre. Paradise Valley is home to fertile farmland and some of the best horse-riding trails on the Sunshine Coast. Every weekend from May to September, Paradise Exhibition Park hosts a popular farmer’s market with local vendors and live music in abundance. The site is also home to a miniature railroad, with 800 feet of rideable track that is sure to be a hit with young visitors. Further along Padgett Road you will find access to West Lake, a hidden gem with warm waters and woodland views. We recommend reaching it by 4x4 vehicle or a short hike, but remember to pack out everything you brought in, as there are no garbage receptacles on site.

TEXADA ISLAND

TEXADA HIKING | RODGER HORT

The largest of the Southern Gulf Islands, Texada was discovered by Spanish explorers in 1791. Since then, "The Rock" has provided miners with various payloads of iron, copper, gold, marble and, most recently, limestone. Present-day Van Anda was amalgamated from two different settlements and was a veritable boomtown before a devastating fire levelled all but the bank safe in 1912. Today, Texada is home to 1,200 full-time residents, split between Gillies Bay and Van Anda. Summer events, such as the popular Sandcastle Weekend, Texada FlyIn and Run the Rock marathon show off the area’s beautiful scenery and deep-running community spirit. Texada Island is accessible by plane, boat or a 25-minute ferry crossing from Westview Harbour to Blubber Bay, and once ashore there are over 300 square kilometres to explore and enjoy. No trip to the island would be complete without a picnic at Shelter Point Campground followed by a walk to find the giant Douglas fir tree along the nearby nature trail. However, the island’s hidden features are arguably some of its best. Visit Shingle Beach and spend an afternoon spelunking in the natural karsks near Stromberg Falls, or bring a kayak and paddle across to Jedidiah Island Marine Provincial Park. You’ll find a variety of grocery items at the Gillies Bay General Store and Texada Market in Van Anda, including in-store liquor service, baked goods, and deli. Enjoy meals offered at our restaurants and cafés in Blubber Bay, Van Anda, and at the Shelter Point Concession Stand. Food-to-go options are plentiful too. The summer Farmers Market on Sundays is a delight of local produce, baked goods, holistic health products, and artistic items. Texada is a safe place to live, hike, camp, and explore. Without bears, cougars, or poisonous reptiles, enjoying the island’s vast natural beauty is a relaxing and rewarding experience. PAGE 40 • DISCOVER POWELL RIVER 2020

Powell River is in the midst of a culinary revolution, with residents and restaurateurs adopting a farm-to-fork philosophy like never before. From aquaponics-grown lettuce to farmed steelhead and locally raised meats, there is so much to find on our regional table.

In addition to the variety of exhibits on display, there is also a gift shop selling Coast Salish art, books and more. DINING Dine at one of Powell River’s many fine establishments. Westview is home to an impressive array of ethnic food options, though others can be found just about anywhere in town. Trip to Lund for a cinnamon bun at Nancy’s Bakery is a must. TOURING Hop in your car and visit one of our talented local craftspeople. Coast Cultural Al-

liance’s purple banner tour highlights 10 sites from Saltery Bay to Lund. Do not forget to stop by Artique and Wind Spirit Galleries in the centre of town. Or, see how they do it at Townsite Brewing. WORKING AND READING Coastline Colab, a brand new coworking, collaboration, meeting and learning space for remote workers, freelancers, entrepreneurs, start-ups, small businesses and innovators is now open and available to not only locals but also visitors that may need to get a little work done while here.

TOWNSITE JAZZ FESTIVAL | ROBERT COLASANTO

TOWNSITE JAZZ FESTIVAL

FESTIVALS AND EVENTS

Townsite Jazz Festival returns April 1-4, 2020 for a weekend of worldclass performances in Powell River’s historic Townsite district. This year’s lineup features Phil Dwyer, Jodi Proznick, Miles Black, Oliver Gannon, Bill Coon, and more. Intimate venues ranging from 40 to 400 seats will play host to a variety of jazz flavours, and student ensembles have been tapped to open for seasoned professionals at every concert, creating an environment that fosters both camaraderie and hands-on experience. It’s a place where legends cross paths with rising stars, the young rub shoulders with the experienced, and the audience gets a front-row seat. Dust off your salsa shoes for a Latin Dance featuring Mazacote on April 4 at Dwight Hall; or bring the kids to the Ash Avenue Amble, a multiconcert open afternoon where three venues will play host to 10 different performances over a four-hour period – all within one block of one another.

At no time does Powell River’s cultural tapestry unfurl more completely than during the summer months. In fact, the city is in the midst of a beautiful predicament: it has become so rich with activities that organizers are starting to run out of weekends to contain them. From choral music to chainsaw carving, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

SUNSHINE COAST TOURISM

International Choral Kathaumixw

International Choral Kathaumixw (pronounced Ka-thou-mew) has consistently grown and evolved since the first instalment took place in 1984. In the Tla’amin language, Kathaumixw means “a gathering together of different peoples,” and the biennial festival does just that. Previous instalments have boasted 1,500 singers or more from choirs as

far away as Uganda, New Zealand, Hong Kong and Slovenia. A team of volunteers spends more than two weeks converting Hap Parker Arena into a concert hall for three gala concerts, and a host of other venues flourish throughout the city during the five-day spectacle. Kathaumixw 2020 will take place from June 29 to July 3. For the full lineup of choirs and guest artists, visit kathaumixw.org.

Much of the Powell River we see today was founded in the early 1900s as a lumber town, so it is only fitting that the community is home to a world-class logger sports and chainsaw carving exhibition. The 25th Powell River Logger Sports, July 11 and 12, 2020, at Willingdon Beach, Loggers Memorial Bowl amphitheatre will showcase exhilarating events such as the underhand chop, springboard chop, chokerman’s races, axe-throwing, tree climbing, single buck, double buck and a high tree act. Competitors will be coming in from around the world.

TEXADA SANDCASTLE

STEPHANIE FORMOSA

Now entering its 37th year, Texada Island Sandcastle Weekend brings together a random mix of pastimes that truly offer something for everyone. Festivities on Saturday, July 18, begin with the always popular parade in the morning. Participants, fun floats, bands and cars will follow a short route through the village of Gillies Bay. There is also a car show and shine, bed races and a kids’ zone featuring a bouncy castle. Live music and more than 30 vendors of food, arts and crafts will also surround the ball field in Gillies Bay. There is usually bingo in the afternoon and in the evening you can head down to Shelter Point for a lip-synch contest, moon-bag ceremony and laser light show to close out the night. Sunday begins with a pancake breakfast followed by the actual namesake event of the weekend, the sand sculpture competition, taking place between 10 and 3 pm at Gillies Bay Beach.

BLACKBERRY FESTIVAL

Powell River’s unorthodox celebration of the humble blackberry has undergone several transformations over the course of its 27-year history. What began as a seaside winemaking competition in 1993 soon shifted its focus toward a week of food-centric events. The festival culminates in an all-ages street party and fireworks display in the heart of town. On the evening of Friday, August 14, four blocks of vehicular thoroughfare along Marine Avenue will be cordoned off to allow locals and visitors a chance to eat, socialize and be entertained under the setting sun.

SUNSHINE MUSIC FESTIVAL

For 38 years, Sunshine Music Festival has served as the official goodbye to summer in Powell River. The event takes place each September over Labour Day weekend, drawing an all-ages crowd to Palm Beach Regional Park to enjoy its gorgeous setting and laid-back hippie charm. Just metres from the shore, the main stage plays host to an eclectic mix of local up-and-comers, dynamic storytellers and Canadian folk trea-

sures. The event’s most iconic feature, however, might just be its oversized canvas tent, which offers faithful shelter from the heat of the sun, or perhaps the barbecue-corn booth where the simple combination of butter and maize will make your tastebuds feel like they have joined a commune in Flavour Town. For more information on this year's event, September 4-6, 2020, visit sunshinemusicfest.ca.
