How will you be celebrating the Victoria Day Long Weekend?
Although Victoria Day began in 1845 as a way of commemorating Queen Victoria’s birthday, the holiday has since taken an additional meaning: the unofficial start of Canada’s summer season.
Although the summer weather may not arrive in time for the long weekend, we hope you take the opportunity to enjoy what Greater Victoria has to offer.
The Thrifty Foods 122nd Victoria Day Parade presented by CHEK TV returns for the first time since 2019, beginning at Mayfair Mall and finishing at the intersection of Douglas and Humboldt streets. Featuring hundreds of floats and cultural performances, this event from the Greater Victoria Festival Society is certainly one you won’t want to miss.
Before and after the parade, enjoy a great meal at a local restaurant or bring some takeout to a local park. Check out some great attractions, go on a sightseeing tour, or experience family time while taking a much needed break.

The Chamber will be closed on Victoria Day, Monday, May 23.
