This year marks the 14th Annual Tofino Shorebird Festival with events organised by the Raincoast Education Society. More at tofinoshorebirdfestival.com

- Clayoquot Island Open HouseMay 17 - 19
Once a year - on May long weekend - the folks on Clayoquot Island open up their island to visitors. It's a unique and special experience to spend an afternoon wandering the beaches, forest boardwalks and the beautiful gardens of this 25-acre jewel. It is only a short boat ride away from Tofino and complimentary shuttles fun from the First Street dock from noon until 6pm on Saturday and Sunday.
- Tofino's Public MarketMay 17 - September 29
The Tofino Public Market Society presents Saturday Markets, May to September on Tofino's Village Green.
“Make it, Bake it, Grow it, Gather it” is the market’s principle. Vendors of all ages include local artisans, home bakers, market gardeners, and wild food harvesters. Organic and B.C. grown produce is most welcome. Non-profit organizations are also encouraged to participate.
Both locals and tourists alike enjoy visiting the market, held on the Tofino Village Green, at 3rd and Campbell, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Music, food, and surprises add to the fun, festive atmosphere.
The Markets provide a forum for Tofino artisans, artists and performers (and visiting vendors from across Vancouver Island and beyond) to showcase their wares.
In a festive atmosphere with fresh food, live music and other activities, visitors and locals can shop and peruse from vendor to vendor.
Come down to the park and check out what people are making, baking, growing and gathering.
