The Peninsula Toy Show in October is going to be BIG

It’s fall event season here at the tip of the Saanich Peninsula, and there are plenty of upcoming conferences near our Sidney BC hotel if you’re so inclined – of course, most visitors to Sidney in the fall and winter want to go biking, and walking, and hiking, and kayaking, and fishing, and golfing, and generally enjoy the outdoors.

The Mary Winspear Centre is, of course, ground zero of conferences and goings-on in Sidney. The Mary Winspear Cultural and Conference Centre is an integral part of the local Peninsula community as well as an important facility to the the business, social and cultural communities . Its rich history from the 1950s is preserved and enhanced in a beautiful West Coast-style modern building that showcases lovely wood beam structures that is truly the pride of Sidney and the Saanich Peninsula.

There are a lot of conferences, exhibitions and meetings in Sidney, and, when combined with celebrations and special events, that means a lot of visitors to our pretty little town. And we think these visitors should stay with us at the Cedarwood while they’re here!

Here’s a brief list of upcoming events and conferences that are going to be held in Sidney at the Mary Winspear Centre:
