Timber Fest to come to Qualicum Beach

Forestry-themed event will take place in May 2020

A new festival is coming to Qualicum Beach this spring — TimberFest will take place in Qualicum Beach in May 2020.

The festival is described as a family-oriented event with a variety of activities.

At first, the council was considering replacing the town’s Family Day celebrations with the festival, but has now said both events will go forward this spring. However, Mayor Brian Wiese said that more volunteers are imperative to this year’s Family Day event.
