Holiday Open House 2018

Sunday, November 25th was the day the Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit held its second annual Christmas Open House, welcoming almost 700 members of the Cowichan Community to tour the facility and revel in the Spirit of Christmas!

Many of our younger attendees enjoyed telling Santa their secrets and sharing their hopes of what will be under the Christmas tree on that special day.  Mrs. Claus was there also to provide hugs and Hot Wheels kiddie toys to some very good children (aren’t they all good children in the Cowichan Valley?). Many also left with a very special photo memento capturing their visit with Santa.  

Over 200 of our attendees were passengers in a circuit taxi, enjoying two laps around the circuit driven by a professional driver in one of our professional circuit vehicles.   


Our staff prepared Christmas cookies (over 1500), and provided hundreds of cups of steaming hot chocolate and mulled cider.  Averill Creek Vineyards was on hand to provide samples of their delicious award-winning wines.


The Jam Factory Band got everyone into the Christmas spirit with their Christmas Carols

The Purica Foundation was on hand, and the community demonstrated their incredible generosity by providing $1300.  The Circuit is proud to match that donation.

The Circuit wishes to thank our community partners and local suppliers for helping us welcome neighbours and friends to our Christmas Open House.
