Slow Cowichan Event - International Cittaslow Day

International Cittaslow Day Potluck Dinner & Documentary Screening 

To mark International Cittaslow Day, Cittaslow Cowichan Bay is hosting a potluck dinner and movie night at the Cowichan Bay Maritime Centre on Sunday, September 30.

Bring a potluck dish with local ingredients to share. In an effort to host a zero waste event, please bring your own plate, cup and cutlery (no plastic or styrofoam please!).

If the weather is cooperative we will eat on the pier. Otherwise, we will head inside the centre.  Dinner will be followed by a screening of 'Island on the Edge', a film which looks at food production on Vancouver Island and questions food security issues unique to the area. More information on the film can be found here.

  • Potluck dinner starts at 6 pm 
  • ‘Island on the Edge’ begins at 7 pm. 
  • Movie screening by donation.
