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.

Great band turnout for the Cumberland Victoria Day parade. Play down Dunsmuir Ave followed by a massed band (5 bands attended) then slowly making our way back up the street entertaining in each ‘watering hole’ found along the way.  Well done.
