News: 2018 Centennial Square and Beacon Hill Park Music Lineups Released in CityVibe


Victoria’s 2018 CityVibe guide is available now
The City of Victoria released the 2018 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 third year is the Folk Music Evening Series happening Tuesday nights in July and August at Cameron Bandshell.

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

CityVibe is available in hard copy and online. To view the 2018 CityVibe guide, CLICK HERE.
