1 Centennial Square
Every great city has a dynamic public square where people of all ages gather for quiet contemplation, play or celebrations.
For the City of Victoria, that gathering place is Centennial Square, located next to Victoria's heritage City Hall (Douglas & Pandora) in the north end of downtown. The square features modern design with fountain, benches and curved steps, surrounded with trees and planters. It is also home to Summer in the Square.
Free Lunchtime Concerts in the Square

Join us for free concerts on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from noon - 1 p.m. from July 2 to September 10, 2015 in Centennial Square. All concerts are “rain or shine” and are subject to change.

Eventide Music Series
Join us Thursday evenings from 6 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. from July 2 to September 3 for the Eventide Music Series. Eventide, (pronounced “even-tide”) is the old name for “evening”, and was chosen to reflect the timing of the concerts in Centennial Square. This free concert series highlights Victoria’s eclectic local music scene featuring sounds that may or may not be described as “idiosyncratic, post angular, electro gypsy shoegaze, with a twist of twee folk, and psychedelic freak-space pop”. The Eventide Music Series is presented by the Downtown Victoria Business Association, the City of Victoria and CFUV Community Campus Radio. the The 2015 schedule will be available here soon.
