Summer in the Square

Enjoy free lunchtime and evening concerts and events in Centennial Square during Summer in the Square.

Lunchtime Concerts

Bring your lunch and some sunscreen and soak up some sun and free tunes this summer. From classical to world beat, folk to jazz and baroque to blues, there's something for everyone. Join us for free Lunchtime Concerts in the Square, Tuesday - Thursday from July to early September from noon - 1 p.m.

  • 2019 Schedule coming soon!

Eventide Music Series

Join us Thursday evenings from 6 p.m. - 9 p.m. from July to August for the Eventide Music Series. Eventide, (pronounced “even-tide”) is the old name for “evening”, and was chosen to reflect the timing of the concerts in Centennial Square. This free concert series highlights Victoria’s eclectic local music scene featuring sounds that may or may not be described as “idiosyncratic, post angular, electro gypsy shoegaze, with a twist of twee folk, and psychedelic freak-space pop”.

The Eventide Music Series is presented by the City of Victoria in partnership with CFUV Community Campus Radio, with support from the Downtown Victoria Business Association. For more
