Thousands of people came out on September 16, 2017 to see the sights, make some new friends and feel a part of our great community!

For the last two consecutive years, citizens have taken advantage of this opportunity to get to know their community better, as we threw open the doors to dozens of Greater Victoria venues for a fun, free day for the whole family!

On a beautifully sunny September day in 2016, the Victoria Foundation collaborated with popular attractions throughout Greater Victoria to present Victoria Foundation Day, an event honouring our organization’s 80th anniversary and a celebration of our community. And your response was incredible!

The popularity of the first year’s event inspired us to bring it back with even more attractions and a stronger focus on community. So for 2017, throughout the region museums, galleries, gardens, parks, non-profits, sport facilities and more again opened their doors, offering experiences, activities and knowledge at no cost, all in celebration of Greater Victoria and you, its residents!
