News: 2017 Summer in The Square and Concerts in The Park Lineups Released in CityVibe


The City of Victoria released the 2017 edition of the CityVibe guide promoting festivals and outdoor events happening in Victoria over the summer. Included in the guide is a schedule for the city’s Summer in The Square lunchtime concerts in Centennial Square and Afternoon Concerts in The Park at Cameron Bandshell in Beacon Hill Park. Returning for a second year is the Folk Music Evening Series happening Tuesday nights in July and August at Cameron Bandshell.

We have added as many shows to our calendar with artist links as we could so you can explore the mostly local talent performing. We are slowly adding links each concert listing to this post as they are added to the calendar
