The Comox Valley Pipe Band is a community based organization dedicated to the preservation and enhancement of Scottish culture in the Comox Valley. Established as a registered non-profit society in 1985, the band regularly participates in a wide variety of parades, community events and Highland gatherings as well as providing individual piping and drumming services for special events. The Band is particularly proud of the large number of young students which have been introduced to piping and pipe band drumming through its' training programmes. Many of the current band personnel were trained from within the band organization.

Due to the increased number of Covid19 cases across the Province & the Country, all Pipe Band practices will be suspended until further notice. We are taking this action to help ensure our (& our families) safety during the pandemic.

When it is deemed safe for med/large groups to gather again in indoor spaces, an email will be sent out to inform all members of our plans. For students we will look at the possibility of doing virtual lessons - we will keep you informed.

Thanks for your understanding, & stay safe
