Enjoy three days of free, spectacular performances on an outdoor stage in the plaza at the Royal BC Museum in the heart of downtown Victoria, BC. Each day starts with performances from the two local Host Nations and follows with shows from Indigenous performers from across the British Columbia. Indigenous artisans will be on-site with their goods for sale - carvings, prints, jewellery and more. Plus, you can watch special artisan demonstrations and learn more about the creative process from the artisans themselves. Sample the culinary talents of the Songhees Nation.
