Comox Valley - Cultural Capital of Canada

I n 2007 the Comox Valley was designated as a cultural capital of Canada in recognition of its many special activities that promote the arts and culture in community life.

The Comox Valley comprises the municipalities of Courtenay, Comox, Cumberland and the outlying areas of Fanny Bay, the Oyster River, Royston, Union Bay, Merville, Black Creek, Mount Washington and Hornby & Denman Islands.

The name Comox comes from the First Nation word komuckway which was shortened by the early European visitors to k'omoks and then eventually to Comox. The name means a “a celebration of creative abundance.” It is no wonder the Comox Valley is known as the "Land of Plenty"

The Ginger Giraffe bed and breakfast is ideally situated for the visitor to take advantage off all the activities and services that the Comox Valley and surround has to offer.
Come! Stay! Enjoy!
