It may not be ACDC playing at the arena, but it’s a start!

The Inner Harbour Summer Line Up returns this weekend, and will run until September.

Starting May 1st, artisans and vendors will set up daily along the harbour’s lower causeway between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m, until September 12th.

From handmade jewelry and artwork to lemonade and mini donuts, the Summer Line Up will bring a vast array of artisans, vendors, and food vendors to visitors.

According to the Greater Victoria Harbour Authority (GVHA) there will be a food truck location at the east end of Ship Point near the 3D Canada sign. Featuring a selection of takeaway food options from Songhees Seafood & Steam, Cup-A-Roni, and Bubble on the Run.

Additionally, Hot Dog Hustling, The Lemon, Elixir, and Empire Donuts will be set up along the lower causeway.

The Songhees Nation will also welcome their artisans along the south apron of the causeway, below the ‘Welcome to Victoria’ flower garden.

‘Explore Songhees’ will expand their cultural tourism offerings over the course of the summer with spaces and activation throughout the lower causeway and at Ship Point.

Detailed plans for these activations will be announced later this spring.

The GVHA said public health measures will be followed, with half of the spaces available for artisans and vendors, and masks worn by all vendors to ensure an added layer of protection.

With up to 23 people spaced out along all three sides of the lower causeway, the Inner Harbour Summer Line Up is bound to feed your soul.

“Relaunching the Inner Harbour Summer Line Up will bring life back to the Lower Causeway, which is part of the centre of tourism for the downtown core,” said Ian Robertson, CEO, Greater Victoria Harbour Authority.

“In 2020, we were unable to safely find a way to allow artisans and vendors to interact with causeway users. Thanks to the work between our team and Island Health, as well as a year of understanding how this virus spreads, we have found a way to restructure the activation of this space for this summer.”
