The Greater Victoria Festival Society
The Greater Victoria Festival Society was incorporated under the Society Act on March 3, 1992.
Our purpose is to engage and produce activities that are beneficial to the community as a whole. Our mandate is to develop and promote Civic Spirit and Pride with the creation of festivals, parades and special events.
Two of our major annual events are the Victoria Day Parade and the Santa Light Parade. These parades bring joy to our community and draw thousands of people to our beautiful downtown Victoria streets every year. Our Society also uses these events to leverage support for local charities like the Mustard Seed Food Bank as we install several collection bins along the parade routes.
We love bringing fantastic events to our communities which in turn bring our fantastic community members together!
