Thank you for showing the hospitality industry some love!
In June 2022, from Tuesday to Thursday each week, overjoyed restaurant, pub, and bar patrons were the lucky recipients of free meals thanks to the Picnics and Patios Campaign.
Representatives from the BC Restaurant and Food Services Association, Destination Greater Victoria, the Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce, the Downtown Victoria Business Association, City of Victoria, Used.ca and Sysco collaborated to bring back the Picnics & Patios Campaign, rewarding those supporting the hospitality industry with free meals.
Whether you supported local restaurants by visiting patios or by taking your food to go, thank you for showing our favourite eateries some love with The Greater Victoria Picnics & Patios Campaign!
Continue to show support for the hospitality industry by enjoying delicious food and drinks across the region. Not only are these businesses staples in our communities, they are run by our friends, families, and neighbours. So next time you’re looking for a tasty way to support local businesses, enjoy a picnic or a patio!
It was important the community partners help those who cannot afford to dine out. In this spirit, they were also pleased to donate over $1,000 to The Mustard Seed.

The Greater Victoria Picnics & Patios Campaign wouldn’t have been possible without support from our sponsors and partners.
