All festivals and celebrations in the guide are recipients of the City’s annual Festival Investment Grant. Over the past 24 years, the City has awarded more than $4 million to local non-profit arts and culture organizations. Recipients range from neighbourhood groups hosting events like the Selkirk Waterfront Festival and FernFest, to citywide celebrations like Pride Week events and Symphony in the Summer.  This year Canada Day in Victoria will be a community-led event, supported in part by FIG funding.
