5 things to do in and around Victoria on Tuesday, September 19th


Happy Tuesday, Victoria!

We’re focusing on creativity and expression this Tuesday with a lineup of local bands at the Victoria Event Centre, a featured rock band at Capital Ballroom, swing dance drop-in lessons, and more.

Reach for your inner artist or watch others perform in their element!

Here’s 5 things to do in and around Victoria this Tuesday, September 19th:

Bands! Bands! Bands! at the VEC

The Victoria Event Centre is thrilled to present their new music series ‘Bands! Bands! Bands!’ set to kick off this Tuesday!

It’s funded by the City of Victoria’s Music Strategy Fund and will take place every month with a focus on local musicians and bands across all genres!

This is huge news for emerging artists who want to perform but can’t quite justify the cost of renting a venue.

So, grab a bundle of your pals and support local musicians at the VEC!

Tickets are $7 in advance or $10 at the door.

Victoria Language Exchange (VLE)

VLE is putting on their monthly Language Exchange at Swans Brewery Pub!

VLE is an in-person international language exchange group in Victoria, where members meet up to practice the languages they’re learning, get the chance to speak in their native language, and make friends from around the world.

They value real-life practice and interaction as opposed to grammar books and textbooks — though they say those always help too!

Anyone can become a member! $2 entry fee and be sure to bring your photo ID, as this is a 19+ event.

  • Where: 506 Pandora Avenue
  • When: Tuesday, September 19th from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
