THIS IS AN INVITATION.
My name is Joseph and I operate the Victoria Harbour Festival in Victoria's inner harbour. This year we are looking for talented and friendly vendors to sell their creations to the thousands of tourists that visit the harbour every year. This summer there will be special Harbour Days events that go all weekend.On these special weekends, vendor displays can be left up overnight. The list of events is below:
SwiftsureCanada Day (Foodie Fest)
BC Long Weekend (Symphony Splash)
Fashion SplashLabour Day (Blues Bash)
Ship Point Night Market
Ogden Point Market Place
Click on the above links for more detailed information about each event.
There are limited spaces for some events so please send in your application as soon as possible if you are interested. New this year is the Ogden Point Market Place. This is a small market place located at the cruise ship terminal, right where the cruise ships arrive. There are only 7 spots available per day and we believe this market should be quite a lucrative opportunity. If you are interested in this market, please let us know via email.Applications can be found at the bottom of this page and each event page. If you are interested, please fill out the corresponding application form and either mail it to the address below, or email a copy back to us.

Friday April 25th – Sunday April 27th. It’s the Play on! Hockey Tournament, which is put on by Hockey Night in Canada. The tournament will start here in Victoria and move its way across Canada. Play on! is very excited to be having the event at Ogden Point this year and if all goes well they would like to have the event here annually.
Along with the 12 hockey rinks, there will be vendors selling food and crafts. They are expecting 5000 spectators over the weekend.
The event is all inclusive, and aims to “preserve, promote, and celebrate hockey as an iconic piece of Canadian culture.” They also believe that “sport participation is capable of instilling critical aspects of positive youth development by fostering values such as sportspersonship, respect, and embracing challenges.”
As a national program Hockey Night in Canada’s Play on! has donated over half a million dollars in value to national charities over its program life. In addition to this, at the local event level each tournament will feature a corporate division in which 50% of the proceeds will go directly to the local charity. This year’s charity is still being sources, last year it was KidSport Victoria.
The event will take place in the employee parking lot, and the Robbins lot will be used for event parking. At Ogden Point.
