Summer at Ship Point heats up Victoria's Inner Harbour with food, drinks, music

Whether you’re into wellness, local food, drinks or live music, there are dozens of ways to enjoy summer at Ship Point, according to the City of Victoria.

From June 11 to Sept. 19, OUR DWNTN will transform Ship Point at Victoria’s Inner Harbour into a “vibrant” gathering place for friends and family.

On most Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, visitors can join a free one-hour yoga class or full-body boot camp between 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.

The city says food will be available from local food trucks from 4 to 8 p.m., while cold drinks will be served on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Victoria Beer Society’s beer garden.

Live music is also featured on the OUR DWTN stage on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6 to 7 p.m. and Wednesdays from 5 to 6 p.m., showcasing a line-up of Latin rhythms, Motown, R&B, jazz, blues, and folk.

There will be free dance lessons by the city’s artist-in-residence, Kemi Craig, and a drag show presented by Left Coast Drag Collective. Bad Rabbit Radio will broadcast live with DJ Nova Jade.

This year, the city says Summer at Ship Point will feature an expanded green space, Adirondack seating, planters, shade umbrellas, and new overhead lighting. It will also include outdoor games such as giant chess, hula hoops, and giant Jenga for the whole family to enjoy.

Visitors are encouraged to pick up a Summer at Ship Point stamp card from the site host and collect stamps during their visits to enter to win an OUR DWTN gift card or prize pack.
