What’s On in Victoria?

Victoria is a wonderful place to live but, in my experience, not always an easy place to get to know. I was here for 3 years before I even figured out major events such as Symphony Splash and Feast of Fields. In the last couple weeks I’ve had been two additional experiences.

One was trying to find out when the Victoria Day Parade was (Stop – Even I got that the Victoria Day Parade happens on Victoria Day). Meaning what time did it start..

The second was seeing a sign in the middle of Oak Bay Avenue for the Oak Bay Tea party. Which I had no idea was happening this weekend.

In the first case I couldn’t find the parade start time with a lot of searching. In the second I didn’t think to look. Both convinced me I needed another information source.

Now don’t get me wrong, there are some  great sources out there like; Calendar of Events (linked from City of Victoria), Events Calendar (tourismvictoria.com), and Harbourliving. What was missing for me was a way for this information to get in my face. I wanted a way to have these events show up in my desktop, on my iPhone, and in the daily reminders that ‘bing’ on a daily basis.

While I would love someone to step up and provide a solution,  this week I tried to build something to solve this problem. In the short term, I’ve rolled up a solution with Google Calendar that I’m sharing at www.meetupvictoria.com. We’ll see how it goes.
