Come enjoy the second annual Colwood Seaside Festival and Paint-in at the Fort, a free community celebration at one of Canada’s most picturesque urban National Parks. Celebrate arts, culture and heritage with live entertainment, great food and activities.

Colwood’s Fort Rodd Hill and Fisgard Lighthouse National Historic Sites offer glimpses into our proud military history, Canada’s oldest west coast lighthouse, along with stunning views of the Olympic Mountains and Salish Sea.  It’s a world-class destination, and the perfect spot for celebrating Canada 150!

The festival includes Music, Food Trucks, Horse Drawn Carriage Rides, Kids Crafts & Activities, Interactive Heritage Site Tours with John Adams, a Vintage Dress-Up and Selfie Station, Tintype Photography Demonstrations, and a plein air painting competition complete with a special guest appearance by Victoria’s own Emily Carr!
