In March 2017, we will be celebrating our 31st annual festival! We hope you can be a part of the inspiration, education, and entertainment by celebrating our coastal traditions, unique environment, and the spring return of the grey whale.
Join the fun on Vancouver Island's wild west coast, as we celebrate the arrival of nearly 25,000 grey whales on their migration from the Baja Peninsula to Alaska's Bering Strait. Experience the wonders and charm of the Pacific Rim Whale Festival, taking place throughout the coastal towns of Tofino and Ucluelet and the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve.
It's an all-out celebration of coastal living! It's about grey whales and marine life education, inspirational talks and interpretive walks, children's fun for the small and culinary events for the tall, First Nations cultural workshops and more - come and experience a coastal tradition!
