Summer Festival Update

If the World Cup has got you in the mood for some international flavours, check out one of this summer’s cultural food fests. This past weekend saw both an Italian Fest and a Afro-Carribean Festival, but Victoria blogger Melody Wey tells us about two upcoming events.


Festival Mexicano

July 9-11, 2010

Come on down for a tango and celebrate Mexican Latin American culture at Centennial Square and the Victoria Event Centre. Guaranteed fun at Centennial Square’s open air main stage with local performers sharing traditional music and dance, along with Mexican/Latin American food and beverages, arts and crafts. You don’t want to miss out on this festival ‘cause I’ve heard that the guacamole is some of the best in town. For more information contact 250 216-3664 or visit


Greek Fest!

September 1-6, 2010

Hosted annually by the Victoria and Vancouver Island Greek Community Society, the Greek summer food festival is always a treat. It’s always fun and festive. Come out to enjoy some Greek food, coffee, pastries and perhaps even a little Ouzo. You can also catch some dance performances by over 20 groups. The six days of festivities are outdoors at the Commonwealth Recreation Centre at 4648 Elk Lake Drive. For more information visit:
