If there's one thing the pandemic taught us, it's the importance of getting outside in the fresh air, enjoying the benefits of nature and staying active and connected.

As the BC Restart Plan lays out guidelines for bringing us back together safely, the City of Colwood is striving to create community connections by encouraging residents to head out and enjoy our spectacular natural surroundings. 

One way we do this is by inviting local vendors to offer food for sale at the waterfront, where there is abundant space to enjoy the benefits of outdoor social connections in the beauty of our natural seaside surroundings.Grab a bite and then wander by the waves, beach comb, bird watch, paddle or just lounge on the sand in the sunshine!

Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, head to the Lagoon Beach along Ocean Boulevard in Colwood for eats from your favourite local food trucks in the fresh air by the ocean. Starting in July we'll have live local music on Saturday evenings from 5 to 7pm on our rustic beach stage near the bird sculptures and portable washroom building.

Supporting all Colwood businesses

The Beach Food initiative gets people out and about in our community, which increases visibility and visits to other Colwood businesses. We'll also use Beach Food signage, promotions and partnerships to encourage support for Colwood's many great restaurants and food providers

Taking extra care to protect health

Current health orders prevent us from dining in at restaurants, while take out service and outdoor activities are encouraged. The Beach Food initiative aligns with these directions.

Vendors will follow the guidelines set out by the Provincial Health Officer for local markets and measures similar to what is required for restaurants.

Colwood’s Beach Food program has always required that food trucks have Island Health permits and Food Safe certification as well as full liability insurance and a valid business license.

During this unique time, they are also required to have a COVID-19 Operations Plan in place to outline specific measures related to personal health, sanitizing, handwashing and distancing.

The City will be marking out food vendor locations that are well distanced from each other. And you'll see reminders about distancing while ordering and receiving food.

So grab a bite, pick a secluded spot on the beach and pull up a log or lay out a blanket to enjoy the fresh ocean air well distanced from others.
