Directions: Please pick up your Map of the downtown Parksville business area, showing the locations of all 8 Art Banners, at the McMillan Arts Centre before proceeding to the downtown area.



Offered in English.

Wheelchair accessible and has gender-neutral washrooms.


The City of Parksville has designated 8 light standards in the Downtown Parksville Business Centre for new Art Banners created by a curated group of local Artists. This event is rather like a ‘treasure’ hunt as the participants will start at the McMillan Arts Centre to pick up a map showing the locations of all 8 Banners. Nearby businesses will be giving the participants a hole punch on their map for each banner they locate. Once all 8 banners have been located the participants will return to the M.A.C. and show their map with the 8 hole punches, to receive a complimentary Canvas Tote Bag printed with all of the Banner Artworks on it. Thank you for showing your gratitude to this talented & deserving Artistic Team of local Artists curated by Pattiann Withapea.

This event is open to all ages. Have a stroll, see some great artwork, grab an ice cream cone or a cold drink downtown, and receive a super cool tote bag when you’re finished. What’s not to like right? Art Banner Crawl for All Y’all.



Oceanside Community Culture Days

The Oceanside Community Culture Days Group consists of the City of Parksville, The McMillan Arts Centre also known as, the M.A.C. and the Oceanside Community Arts Council. The M.A.C. is the jewel in the Oceanside Community Arts Council’s crown. It embodies everything that a true community arts centre should be. Year round the M.A.C. is the bustling centre for all things Arts & Culture in our Oceanside community as well as a destination “must visit” for thousands of tourists that flock to Parksville in the warm Summer season. There are 3 Galleries located inside the M.A.C. along with a Digital Gallery and a fabulous Gift Shop that is filled with unique works by local Artists & Artisans. There are Exhibitions in the Galleries throughout the year, an ongoing series of Arts & Craft Classes, Poetry Readings, Music Classes, Dance Groups, Chorale Groups, and more. It’s all happening at the M.A.C. Activities for everyone from children to our seniors are plentiful and diverse.
