Victoria brings back summer event guide highlighting the city’s best things to do


With so many events happening in Victoria this year, it can be difficult to keep track.

After a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19, CityVibe, created by the City of Victoria, is back with all the event info for you to have the best summer in the city. 

CityVibe is a virtual go-to guide for free events, summer festivals, arts and cultural activities, galleries and public markets. 

All in one place!

The fun kicks off this long weekend with the Victoria Day Parade and Victoria Highland Games and Celtic Festival at various locations around the city.

“Victoria is such a lively and exciting place to be in the summer, and there is a pent-up demand for people to be out and about enjoying the city,” said Mayor Lisa Helps. 

“After two summers of scaled-back gatherings, we are thrilled to be back with a bigger and even better roster of live music, festivals, markets, and arts and cultural activities for residents and visitors to enjoy.”   

The guide showcases 40 festivals and outdoor activities and more than 100 free outdoor music concerts and activities. 

Various featured spots downtown include Fort Common, Broad Street Pedestrian Zone, Centennial Square, Fisherman’s Wharf Park, and Cameron Bandshell in Beacon Hill Park. 

There are also listings for public markets, museums, art galleries and more.

CityVibe can be found online. Print copies will also be available at senior centres and City Hall.
