Latest News

Get ready for a spectacular summer. The 2024 CityVibe guide is now available and includes a sizzling line-up of almost 200 concerts, festivals, arts programs, public markets and family-friendly events. Victoria is the place to be this summer and it’s all happening over the course of 88 days between June and September. 

“We invite residents and visitors to enjoy this incredible lineup of free live music and arts and culture programming in our vibrant downtown and beautiful parks,” said Mayor Marianne Alto. “Mark your calendars with lots of great activities, including Music at Ship Point, a summer-long mid-week concert series paired with food-trucks, a beer garden, games and lots of free fun, all set against the picturesque backdrop of the Inner Harbour.” 

Check out one of 26 festivals and celebrations, all which include free programming. Grab a picnic and choose from over 130 free concerts or pick from a series of free community arts programs, all while enjoying Victoria’s beautiful downtown and neighbourhoods. 

Take in a concert or learn Chinese Lion Dancing in Beacon Hill Park. Learn how to ballroom dance or enjoy an Eventide concert in Centennial Square. New this year, CityVibe also includes information about Summer Nights at Royal Athletic Park, Pop-Up Family Dances hosted by Artist in Residence Kemi Craig, tips on when to pick up free seedlings for your garden or patio, information about the Downtown Victoria Bike Valet and how to quickly find parkade spots.  

All festivals and events showcased in the guide are recipients of the City of Victoria’s Festival Investment Grants. Over the past 25 years, the City of Victoria has awarded more than $4.4 million to local non-profit arts and culture organizations to nurture the development and sustainability of high-quality annual festivals and celebrations. 

The easy-to-use online format means event details and venue maps can be accessed at home or on the go. CityVibe is available at
