This Summer Shoreline Real Estate Team has put together a Schedule of Events to help you make the most of your Summer in Campbell River! You can view and download our calendar here:
Our calendar kicks off Summer with Canada Day in Campbell River but there is some exciting things in store at Spirit Square downtown on June 30 including a BBQ at 5pm put on by Greig Seafood at the same time as the Tyee Chevrolet Car Show (5-9pm), Country Music live by Jackson Hollow (7-9pm) and a Ridgerider ‘Best Western Dressed’ contest at 7:45pm.
Canada Day preparations to celebrate have already begun and the endless hours put into this community celebration every year is nothing short of amazing; businesses, volunteers and the City band together ensuring that Canada Day is an event for the entire community to enjoy.
As always we are beyond excited for the whole day of events as there is plenty to do, but a few highlights are:
Rotary Canada Day Parade begins at 3:00pm! You can find details and the parade map route HERE>>

Last year Shoreline Real Estate Team supported and sponsored the Discovery Passage Aquarium on their float which one first prize! Although the Aquarium is not contributing a float this year, we still believe education about our oceans and how to preserve and keep marine life safe, is something that should be taught from an early age. This summer the Discovery Passage Aquarium has plenty to offer:
- Instead of a float on Canada Day, they will be open until 9:30PM with face painting outside for children with an aquarium admission;
- They will be celebrating their Birthday onSunday, July 8th. You can win prizes for coming to the aquarium dressed as a sea creature and join in for cupcakes at 12:00PM! Half off admission for the entire day;
- On July 15th they are hosting Explorer Lab Crafts Day where you can visit the explorer lab for crafts with a by donation admission; and
- they have their Summer Camps available. You can find out about the dates, cost and details HERE>>
In our calendar we have included some local businesses and their summer events and camps such as Holly Hill Farm, the Campbell River Country Golf & Country Club, various local markets, and some WOW days for cruises sailing through the Discovery Passage. We consider WOW days as any more than 3 ships passing in one night. However, if you are an avid watcher, you can view the entire schedule HERE>>.
On July 2 Spirit Square is alive from 12 – 4 for Health with a Heart where there will be face painting, live music, dancing and a bake sale to name a few. In fact, Spirit Square will be playing music every Tuesday at 12 noon with music throughout the Summer!
Keep in mind this is not an exhaustive list of events, we are sure there are many more things happening in and around the area we just have not yet heard about but what we encourage is that you get out and enjoy Campbell River and the Community this Summer and all it has to offer! If you are new to the area we are more than happy to recommend some must see spots to take in as much of the natural surroundings you can.
Now get out there and enjoy all that Campbell River has to offer this summer!
