Festivals and Events - Tourism Nanaimo

Nanaimo is famous for its love of quirky fun, which truly kicked off in 1967 when a former mayor of Nanaimo famously donned a pirate costume, raised his sword and launched Nanaimo’s first annual Bathtub Race. “Tubbers” and visitors from around the world have been coming to Nanaimo for more than 40 years to take part in this now world famous festival and race.

Bathtub Races is just one of our many festivals and events in Nanaimo. Check out our Calendar of Events for exciting events showcasing everything from wine and food festivals to the Diwali Festival of Lights and the Nanaimo Pumpkin Festival.
