Watching the auditions reminds me how multifaceted and exceptional we can all be. If you are in the harbour this summer please sit down and enjoy one of our talented performers. We had 14 performers audition for only two available openings. This Year we also auditioned for busking locations at fisherman's wharf.
There are only 3 full-time spots available on the causeway this year, and close to 15 musicians and entertainers competing for them.
There are no more openings to audition, but an audience is welcome and appreciated. Come down to Ship Point Pier (by Milestones Grill at the inner harbour) and cheer on your favourite buskers!
Auditions take place from 12-4pm, Saturday April 16th, Rain or Shine!
THE WEATHER IS GETTING WARMER, THE SUN AND BIRDS AND FLOWERS ARE COMING OUT... AND SO ARE THE BUSKERS, ARTISTS, AND VENDORS OF VICTORIA.
It is that time of year again to send in your application to be a vendor at the beautiful inner harbour of Victoria, B.C.
There are options for artisans of all kinds (as long as you are selling original, hand-made products), as well as musicians (buskers), food carts and trucks, and jugglers/performers.

See you at the harbour!
The 2016 season is here. Dates of this years event will be posted on Feb 14th. Look for a great year in the harbour. One of the new events now in the works is the Chalk Art Festival moving to ship point. This is not official but the plans are in the works. This would include the Ship Point Market and live music. The Harbour would be full of art.
All in all this will be a fantastic season. Attracting millions of tourists. A weaker Canadian dollar should result in an increase in over night US tourist. Cruise ship passengers will enjoy there dollar going further and probably spend a bit more this summer.
Stay tuned as the dates are confirmed for the 2016 season.
