VICTORIA’S GUIDE TO FESTIVALS AND OUTDOOR EVENTS IN 2015
CITYVibe is an annual publication that showcases
the many spectacular City-sponsored and
community-based arts and cultural outdoor events,
outdoor markets and summer festivals that are
taking place in the Capital City.
The festivals and celebrations showcased are
recipients of the City of Victoria’s 2015 Festival
Investment Grant. Over the past 16 years, the City
has awarded over $2 million to local non-profit arts
and cultural organizations.
All content in this guide is distributed as information only, is correct at time
of publishing and is subject to change without notice. The City of Victoria
disclaims all responsibility and all liability you might incur as a result of the
information being inaccurate or incomplete in any way, and for any reason.
Mayor’s Message
Welcome to CITYVibe, your guide
to an action-packed season of arts,
culture and entertainment.
Summer is an amazing and vibrant season in
BC’s Capital City. Our downtown comes alive
as locals and tourists alike enjoy its walkability,
fantastic local coffee, beer and food scenes
and the eclectic and diverse mix of businesses.
This year, many favourite sights, sounds and
flavours will return with our popular annual
events. There are also a number of unique new
events waiting to be discovered.
This summer, enjoy music in Beacon Hill Park
and Centennial Square. Discover local farmers
and artisans at a public market. Enjoy all that
our terrific food truck culture has to offer.
Cheer with your friends at a sporting event
or bring your family and friends to a parade.
From Centennial Square to the Inner Harbour,
from Fabulous Fort Street to Government
Street – just about anywhere you go in Victoria
this summer, there will be music in the air and
people in the streets.
The City of Victoria is proud and excited
to support the many festivals and celebrations
taking place in Victoria this summer.
We hope you enjoy!
Lisa Helps,
Mayor
