NANOOSE BAY – Parties of all kinds are finding a place at Fairwinds.

Located in the scenic Nanoose Bay area, this growing community is building a reputation as a go-to event venue for businesses, community organizations and families.

“A majority of the events we put on take place in the Arbutus Room, which can hold up to 120 people,” says Event Coordinator Jeff Dinn. “The space features access to a beautiful patio and a private bar service. The patio overlooks our golf course, offering a breathtaking view of Fairwinds, including an impressive fountain.”

The Arbutus Room can be rented for a $200 charge, which includes tables, chairs, table dressing, and audio/visual (with a sound system and large screen for presentations). Bartender hours are offered free of charge and additional features can be booked through Dinn and his team for an additional fee.

“For me, the biggest highlight of holding an event at Fairwinds is the food,” says Dinn. “We always get rave reviews on the food.

“We also get consistent feedback on our serving staff. We never really hear enough about how personable, professional, and hard working our serving staff. Elisabeth Robinson manages our front-of-house, and we hear so many good things about her. The service is fantastic and people leave happy and feel looked after.”

Fairwinds hosts a number of community events each year, including fundraisers, weddings, corporate functions and more.

“We serve a number of businesses and community organizations on a regular basis, hosting regular meetings and special events over lunch and dinner, including company Christmas parties,” says Dinn. “We host various golf tournaments, birthday parties for community members, family reunions and weddings.”

The Fairwinds community allows residents to ‘Live Their Passion’, boasting a reputable 18-hole golf course, marina, wellness centre, restaurant, in addition to the community’s residential property.

“It’s a total community,” says Dinn. “Our golf club has nearly 300 members, and they are very social. We help to organize groups as large as 20 people, coordinating their tee-times.”

The staff at Fairwinds aim to create a close community through regular events for members, including ‘Sundays at Four’, a bi-weekly meeting featuring guest speakers and a special dinner.

Over the last few years, the community has attracted newcomers from all over Canada, including retirees from the prairie provinces.
