Victoria Symphony Splash is an annual Victoria Symphony event that takes place on a floating stage moored in Victoria’s Inner Harbour. It includes musical entertainment, food, souvenirs and the evening’s highlight: a live performance by the Victoria Symphony. Splash is now one of the largest annual symphony events in North America, attracting up to 40,000 Victoria residents and visitors from all over the world, some who visit Victoria just to see Splash! Over 400 volunteers help to bring the event to the community.

Entertainment begins at 12:00 on the picturesque Legislature steps and spreads to the Family Zone before culminating on the barge at 7:30 pm with Music Director Christian Kluxen and the Victoria Symphony. The concert concludes with the beloved grand finale performance of Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture with fireworks!
