Plan to Attend the 13th Annual Shellfish Festival June 7 to 16 in the Comox Valley

The "Land of Plenty" that is the Comox Valley will once again showcase some of its natural bounty this June. The Comox Valley is not only a beautiful place to call home, it is also the hub of production for shellfish and oysters on Vancouver Island. The Comox Valley produces the most shellfish in British Columbia and most of the oysters in Canada, which gives this community the title of “Canada’s Oyster Capital.”

Oysters including the world-famous Fanny Bay Oysters, and other varieties from this region are coveted for their delicate taste, due to the pristine ocean waters and consistent sunlight.

Other shellfish grown and harvested in the Comox Valley include Manila clams, geoduck clams, the blue and Gallo mussels and a variety of scallops.

To celebrate this bounty of shellfish, the 13th annual BC Seafood Festival is being held from June 7 to 16, with the Signature Weekend scheduled from June 14 to 16. The festival is the largest of its kind featuring over 40 partners hosting dinners, tours, events, tastings and competitions during the 10-day period to celebrate the Comox Valley’s culinary and seafood attractions and award-winning shellfish producers

Fun competitions include oyster shucking, chowder challenge, best Caesar salad and a chef challenge. Tickets will be available soon to numerous festivities including the Happy Hour Oyster Bar, featuring a variety of oysters, a gala dinner, seafood brunch cookout and more!

Event tickets are on sale now. For more information, go to the BC Seafood Festival website.

Come to the Comox Valley and experience the delicious bounty of local seafood available here. And if you're ready to stay a little longer, take a tour of the oceanview community of The Ridge in South Courtenay, just a few quick minutes drive for the Fanny Bay Oyster headquarters. Phase III of this new home development is now under construction, with more than 100 new homes already built by their preferred builders.

Trumpeter Swans a Natural Highlight of Comox Valley Winters

The Comox Valley has so much versatility to offer with regards to wildlife and surrounding nature. Many people come to the Comox Valley to visit and end up living here because of the beauty of the Comox Glacier, surrounding mountains, Goose Spit, the historical estuary, Mount Washington, the rivers, forest trails, and many recreational activities. Known as the Land of Plenty, the Comox Valley offers a smorgasbord of activities for all ages to enjoy.

A unique success story, the Trumpeter Swan population has rebounded from their near extinction in the 1930s. The population has now grown to an estimated 26,000 birds in North America. Approximately 6,000 birds make a winter stop on Vancouver Island with a majority of them coming to the sanctuary of the Comox Valley.

They start arriving in November and stay until February and can be seen gathering on agricultural lands, fields and grassy areas near the water, where they like to forage at low tide. They spend the winter in these areas before heading north to Alaska in March for the breeding season.

These majestic birds, the largest in North America, can weigh up to 12 kg and measure 150 cm from beak to tail. They have a wingspan of up to 2.5 metres. They are the largest species of waterfowl on the planet. When you hear the “honking” of the trumpeter swans, your natural inclination will be to look towards the sky to see these elegant birds in flight.

Truly, an amazing experience for both visitors and residents.

Interested in moving to the Comox Valley? Contact us for more information on buying or building a new home here.

The 831-acre master-planned residential and golf community of Crown Isle has been designed to include single-family homes, patio homes, fairway homes, a gated community and condominiums. There is a diversity of homes styles that appeal to families, empty nesters or people who want to relocate to experience a taste of the Vancouver Island lifestyle. Crown Isle's premier builders have been an integral part of the community's success, building new homes for the residents of Crown Isle. Today we highlight Benco Homes, a premier custom home builder in Crown Isle, now building new homes at The Rise and Cambridge Estates, the newest subdivisions in Crown Isle.

Starting with the Crown Pointe patio home development more than 25 years ago, Ben Christensen of Benco Ventures has continued to build friendships and homes in Crown Isle. In that time, thanks, to repeat business & client referrals, Benco Ventures has built more than 300 homes in Crown Isle.

Benco is known to maintain the highest level of construction quality, design and post-completion service. Their success is due to their team of second generation builders Ben Christensen and his siblings, and 30 talented long-time employees.  From the ground level, setting the home elevations, to the finishing touch-ups, this hands-on approach ensures a quality crafted Benco home. To view the design and quality in person, visit the Show Home and Design Centre at 1768 Crown Isle Drive, which showcases their homes and custom finishes. A member of the design team is on hand to answer your questions.

The Benco team looks forward to making and maintaining new friends within the unique Crown Isle Golf Resort Community in the beautiful Comox Valley.
