Local culture

There’s plenty of history and culture to be found in Victoria, as you’ll find for yourself if you attend the 6th Annual Victoria Indigenous Cultural Festival, which will be taking place at the Royal BC Museum on June 22 and 23. You’ll see spectacular performances from more than 100 performers from across BC. There’ll also be a marketplace to buy souvenirs and delicious Indigenous cuisine to try, too.

Summer on the lawn

Having fun, making friends, and doing your bit for a good cause, all in the outdoors on a summer’s night? Sign us up. Lawn Summer Nights will be taking place on July 4, 11, 18, and 25.
