Christmas is coming! If you’re looking to get into the holiday mood, come to Nanaimo and check out some great holiday theatre.


Comedian Mike Delamont is one of the world’s most beloved performers. His show, “God is A Scottish Drag Queen” is a recurring smash hit on the Fringe circuit and has since toured every corner of the globe. Delamont has a gift for discovering the ridiculous in everyday situations and showing the silliness in everything through keen observations from the perspective of, yes, a Scottish Drag Queen.

Delamont comes from Vancouver Island, and will be returning to Nanaimo on December 3 with his new holiday show, God is a Scottish Drag Queen: A Christmas Special. Expect the same riotous humour of his primary show but with a decidedly festive twist! Don’t miss it when it comes to the Port Theatre.


James and Jamesy are two British comedians with an incredible flair for physical comedy. In their new holiday-themed show, they are confronted with a peculiarly English catastrophe: a world flooded with tea! Watch these two seasoned performers struggle to keep afloat in this joyfully funny show at the Port Theatre on December 12. This is a hilarious comedy suitable for all ages, so don’t hesitate to bring the kids!


Christmas is all about the spirit of giving. Find the perfect gift for a loved one at the Vancouver Island Market between December 12 and 15 at the Nanaimo North Town Centre! Featuring over 200 of Vancouver Island’s finest artisans selling hand-made, one-of-a-kind items, you’re sure to find something for everybody on your holiday shopping list – and even find a treat for yourself!

Nanaimo is a charming place for a December getaway – and the Best Western Dorchester Hotel provides inviting accommodations for a special trip to the Island!
