Warmer weather, and warmer nights. Makes it hard to stay indoors, all stuffed up. But how can you stay outdoors and always have something to do? Well, aside from simply explore the nature of the island, Victoria will always have outdoor events in the summer. The options are endless and these three are just a sample.
On July 26 to July 29, 2019, the Phillips Backyard Weekender is here. Be sure to bring a piece (or two) of identification for this 19+ event as over 3000 individuals congregate to celebrate this company’s excellence in craft brewery. The festival takes place that weekend right in the backyard of the Phillips Brewery in Victoria. The full weekend pass is $99.50 and a single day pass is $39.50 -- psst; go for the full weekend.
Often times when we think of the warmer months, we also think about all the wildlife present during the day this time of year. However, many forget that daytime is only half of a full day-- many more animals are present during witching hours. While there is clearly no spellcraft being done, there nightlife of these animals is truly alive. Creatures of the Summer Night allows attendees to explore what nature looks like at night -- trust us, it’s very different! Come join ($10/person) and discover the brilliance of these nocturnals. Rendezvous at Swan Lake Christmas Hill Nature Sanctuary on August 2, 2019 at 8:00 PM.
Sunday, August 4, 2019, the Victoria Symphony Orchestra and plenty special guests will put on a world-class performance of classical symphony pieces. Spoiler: they finish their set with a finale of Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture -- fireworks and all! Admission is free and all you need to do is show up at the Victoria’s Downtown Inner Harbour.
The Days Inn Victoria On The Harbour is situated right on the harbour -- hence the name. Making this the perfect place to get a harbour-view every you stay with us. Needless to say, it is right at the heart of Victoria making it easily accessible, and quick to get around to the inner harbour and all the local restaurants.
