Nitinat Lake is situated in Central Vancouver Island, and is home to one of the most consistent thermal-generated winds in BC. During the summer, winds frequently reach 30 knots once the sun heats the valley located behind Nitinat. This makes for a perfect venue for the annual Windfest which occurs every summer. Nitinat Lake is about an hour and a half drive on logging roads southeast of Port Alberni BC. The festival itself is an incredible display of talent and colours as you sit on shore enjoying the unbelievable views. Rustic Camping is available in the area.
The 2016 event dates are August 12-14.
The 2017 event dates are July 21-23rd.
