Parksville takes the cork out for its 9th annual Parksville Uncorked Wine & Food Festival, February 23 – 26, 2017


Tickets now available for events and resort weekend packages

Parksville, Vancouver Island’s seaside town beloved of summertime family vacationers, springs into a different sort of action come February. That’s when Parksville Uncorked Wine & Food Festival lures fans of BC’s wines, beers and cuisine to The Beach Club Resort and Tigh-Na-Mara Seaside Spa Resort for a high-spirited, decadent weekend. The ninth annual celebration takes place February 23 – 26, 2017.
