Fiesta On Fort – Wednesday, August 10   5:00 – 8:30 pm – 700 Block Fort Street

The Downtown Residents Association and the Fort Street Business Association are co-hosting the Fiesta On Fort on Wednesday, August 10, 5:00-8:30 pm on the 700-block Fort Street for a community event celebrating the vibrancy and diversity of the residential and local business communities in the downtown core.

“The residential community in downtown Victoria is booming and we have a fabulous variety of locally owned businesses in the city. This event is about bringing residents out to meet and get to know each other and all the great local businesses on Fort Street for some fun, food and music,” says Wendy Bowkett, board member of the Victoria Downtown Residents Association (DRA).

A large Pop Up Park will be set in the morning along the north side of Fort Street in front of La Taqueria for everyone in the area to enjoy throughout the day. At 5:00pm many of the businesses along the block will remain open, offering deals and discounts to members of the DRA. DJs will set up near the parklet and provide music on the street for the evening. All residents are invited to come down to the Fiesta On Fort to meet other neighbours from the community, stroll the block while exploring our local businesses and soak up the sun and the music in the Pop Up Parklet.

“Fort Street is truly a local street and we are thrilled to be able to collaborate with the Downtown Residents Association on this event, Fiesta on Fort.  What a fun way to strengthen community and connections between the businesses on our street and the residents of downtown,” says Teri Hustins, co-chair of the Fort Street Business Association.

We hope you will join us for the kick-off of this event at 5pm on Aug 10 on 700-block Fort Street.
