Things To Do In Victoria This Weekend
Friday, March 8
Beer | Victoria Beer Week 2019
Victoria Beer Week is a nine-day festival showcasing BC craft breweries in unique event settings. With a focus on education and diverse craft beer selection, VBW 2019 will feature more than 40 BC craft breweries at venues throughout the city.
The goal is to bolster community pride and increase awareness of Greater Victoria as an attractive shoulder-season tourism destination. It brings national and international attention to the fact that Victoria (City of Gardens) has the mildest climate in Canada.
Sports | Vikes Games
Come out and cheer on your basketball, soccer, women’s field hockey, women’s rugby, swimming, cross country and track teams at various events.
Lego | Lego Exhibition
Dozens of Star Wars themed Lego models provide a special focus for this exciting exhibit, rounded out by hundreds of other Lego models including Hogwarts Castle and Lego model of the Bugatti Chiron automobile.
Flowers | Indoor Spring Prelude Garden
While the outdoor gardens sleep, the indoor gardens come to life. Step inside the Spring Prelude, and stroll along the flagstone pathways while breathing in the subtle fragrance of flowering shrubs and flowers.
Bridges for Women’s 9th annual International Women’s Day luncheon will feature Laura Poland, General Manager at Mayfair and many more inspiring figures.
Tickets are $85.
Saturday, March 9
Concert | Alfie Zappacosta

Comedy | Get Over It!
Did you know that March 9 is officially “Get Over it Day”? A day to reflect on getting over something and moving on. We suggest that a few laughs – for whatever it is you have to get over (winter? an ex? stress?) might just do the trick.
