Happy Monday, Victoria!

To welcome you back into the work week we have a stand-up comedy fundraiser for a good cause, inner harbour markets, a HarbourCats baseball game, and more!

Without further ado here are 5 things to do in and around Victoria today.

Sudden Death Standup 

Are you interested in checking out some hilarious comedy for a good cause? Then you’re in luck because Blue Bridge at the Roxy is throwing a Suddent Death Standup fundraiser!

Some of Victoria’s funniest and most talented comedians will face each other head-to-head in a single-elimination battle of wits! Funds raised from this event will go towards repairing exterior damage to the historic Roxy Theatre in the heart of Quadra Village.

  • When: 8:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
  • Where: Blue Bridge at The Roxy, 2657 Quadra Street
