Quality Foods Lunch with the Castles

You are invited to… the Quality Foods LUNCH WITH THE CASTLES! This event is ideal for:

Vancouver Island residents who are living in long term care facilities;

Those who belong to a Senior’s Activity Centre and love a group outing;

Tour groups who may be passing through or staying in Parksville.

During the exhibition, we host this popular event to provide a wonderful experience for your group to enjoy a guided tour of the stunning sculptures and a light lunch.

Upon arrival at the beach venue, your group will be greeted by a representative who, with the help of volunteers, will guide your group around the site, with explanations of how the sculpture fits the theme. After the tour, your group will be served a light lunch underneath a canopy tent. The location is in the shade and overlooks the sculpture site. The 2020 lunch menu includes a sandwich, fruit, dessert and beverages.

Arrival time for groups is approximately 11:30 am, with lunch served after viewing the sculptures. The days for the Quality Foods Lunch with the Castles are limited to Monday to Thursday, as Friday to Sunday are too crowded to conduct tours. The cost for the lunch and tour is $12 per person. Groups must be a minimum of 10 people and must be paid in full 48 hours in advance.

Please note that we have a 24 hour cancellation policy, as the food is ordered ahead of time. If we receive a cancellation with less than 24 hour notice, we ask that your group cover the cost of the food.
