Feast Tofino is an opportunity to celebrate local, sustainable fisheries with our families and yours. This series of events is a collaboration between acclaimed local and regional guest chefs, restaurants, fishermen, foragers and farmers, all of whom celebrate the ‘boat-to-table’ food philosophy and great West Coast times. Feast Tofino runs when the fish arrive in the spring.
Anchor Events include:
Dock Festival: Saturday, April 28. Meet our chefs, enjoy seafood samples and more on Tofino’s working harbour front.
Long Table Dinner: Early May. This collaboration between Tofino and visiting chefs usually takes place in our great outdoors.
Sunday, April 8, is the annual Sneak Peek Into Feast. Get on board and be shuttled to participating Tofino restaurants for evening samplings of locally-inspired food and drink!

Tofino Shorebird Festivalhttp://raincoasteducation.org/events/tofino-shorebird-festival
Every year from late April through May, flocks of sandpipers, plovers, Whimbrels, and many other shorebirds pass through the Tofino area. Thousands stop here to feed and rest as they make their impressive journey from South and Central America northward to their Arctic breeding grounds.
The protected forests, expansive mudflats, long sandy beaches, and rocky shorelines of the region create the right combination of habitats to draw over 40 species of shorebirds to the area, including the largest migratory concentrations of Whimbrels anywhere in British Columbia, and impressive flocks of Western Sandpipers, Dunlin and more. The threatened Red Knot is also a regular visitor each spring, as well as Rock Sandpiper in winter. In past years, local bird expert Adrian Dorst listed at least 30 species of shorebirds during spring migration!
The Tofino Shorebird Festival celebrates this impressive annual migration with a series of educational birding activities and events.
