Dine Around Victoria is back!

From January 14th through February 7th 2021, locals can enjoy Dine Around and Stay in Town Victoria by dining at participating restaurants. This year, over 48 restaurants have created three course meal experiences, varying from $20 to $60 a person. 

Current provincial orders require BC residents to only dine out with members within their own household or, if a single occupant household, eat with one or two other people in their pandemic bubble.
