Set among the stately trees and gardens of the Filberg Heritage Lodge and Park in Comox on the east coast of Vancouver Island the Filberg Festival is truly a unique event. Wander through the grounds surrounded by beautiful gardens, rustic out-buildings and magnificent views of Comox Harbour and the Beaufort Mountain Range.
The principal objective of the Filberg Festival has been to encourage excellence in all forms of arts and crafts, and to assist in the promotion and sale of quality work. The Festival has established a world-wide reputation for the excellence of the work of its juried artisans, and today is one of western Canada’s largest juried outdoor arts show.
Gate admission is charged at the Filberg Festival as it is the primary fundraiser for the not-for-profit organization which has the responsibility of repairing and maintaining this Heritage property and buildings. Over 300 people volunteer each year to make this event a reality.
Artist applications were accepted up to February 9, 2015. The blind jury process will take place following the closing date in February. Accepted artisans will be contacted via email before March 15, 2015.
