Just a short stroll from the Vancouver City Centre Station is the iconic Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, lovingly referred to as the ‘Castle in the City,’ by locals. The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver is one of the oldest and grandest hotels in Vancouver. Opened in 1939 as a joint project of the Canadian National Railway and the Canadian Pacific Railway, the hotel has hosted King George VI and Queen Elizabeth.
Vancouver Island is a great place to be in the summer. Islanders are laid back, artsy, and musical, kind of like the Filberg Festival! Getting to Comox for the Filberg Festival is easy; hop the B.C. Ferry from Horseshoe Bay. Or take The Canada Line to Waterfront and a few steps to Harbour Air flying into Comox Harbour, or The Canada Line to YVR and Pacific Coastal Airlines flying into Comox Airport. No matter how you get here you will have a great time at the Filberg Festival.
