The Downtown Victoria Buskers Festival is a free six-day family friendly community festival.
Starting Tuesday, July 11 until Sunday, July 16, Victoria will become a hub of busking talent with performers coming from far and wide – with a good dose of some homegrown talent thrown in! Dotted around the downtown core will be “Pitch Stop” pop-up locations where buskers will entertain and inspire.
There are a variety of volunteer positions available. Check out their website for more information.
Mark your calendars and join the Extreme Outreach Society from July 9-14 in Sooke for their annual Superkids Summer Camp for underprivileged children ages 6 to 12. They are looking for people to join their team for a great week! Remember that you can make a difference in the life of a child simply by volunteering. They hope to see you there for a week of fun and celebration, so please register here or email [email protected] for more information.
