Live out your biggest summer fantasies at an art and plant shop in the garden!

On Saturday, August 12th and Sunday, August 13th, you’re invited to join the Horticulture Centre of the Pacific as they celebrate their annual Arts & Music in the Gardens event.

This family-friendly gathering in Saanich will take place at the Horticulture Centre Of The Pacific (HCP) and is designed to connect the community with local artists and nature!

With over twenty vendors to visit, you’ll be sure to find some goodies to take home — you may even end up re-decorating your entire house, no judgements here!

Not only will this be a vibrant weekend of art and nature, there will also be live music and plenty of food trucks.

Musicians include My Back Pages, The Ranters, Homespun Band, Tune Raiders, Nele, and more!

Dogs are allowed into the gardens but must be kept on a leash and cleaned up after — there will even be a little doggy pool for them to escape the August heat. 

There will be a water bottle filling station, so guests are encouraged to bring their own and refill it as needed!

Tickets are $12 for non-HCP members — children under 16 as well as HCP members can get in for free. 

Don’t forget to bring cash as some of the vendors will not take cards.
