Hosted by the James Bay Market Society, the Dickens Fair has something for everyone. From treasures to toys, you will find everything from great homemade foods to uniquely crafted gifts. This is an amazing opportunity to meet and support your local Vancouver Island Artisans, hear their stories and learn first hand how they make, bake and craft their wares.

The much-loved Dickens Fair is getting ready to “Deck the Halls” and we’d love to have you join us. With over 70 vendors there will be something for everyone.

Along with our returning vendors, you will recognize your favorite James Bay and Breakwater Market vendors. There will also be many new vendors who will be showcasing their talents. The variety of new products, the quality of workmanship, and the care that goes into their creations are sure to impress the most discerning of shoppers.

The Dickens Café will be serving up muffins and freshly squeezed apple and orange juice, lunch items made from locally sourced products and even vegetarian options. There will also be tea and coffee served all day to help take the chill off.

Bring the whole family! The kids will have fun in the children’s area where they can create a one-of-a-kind treasure of their own. We have Marilyn the “Chicken Lady” who will be introducing us to her incredible feathered friends that is always a big hit with kids of all ages. Our free face painter will embellish the young and “young at heart” with adorable unicorns, ferocious tigers, ladybugs or whatever your heart desires!

Come in out of the cold and visit the Dickens Fair, a wonderful way to spend the day with family and friends.

Strike Midnight: Victoria’s Premiere Fashion Party

Kick-off the holiday season with Victoria’s premiere fashion party presented by Victoria Fashion Week. Experience the iconic Bay Centre like never before with a sophisticated evening of runway shows, drinks, DJs, dancing, and performances until the clock strikes midnight!

Inspired by the after-hours parties that happen in iconic public spaces in large cities, Strike Midnight offers an exclusive experience for the fashion-forward, the culture lovers, the avant-garde and the cosmopolitan to come together, look spectacular, and toast to the outstanding fashion scene right here in our big little city.

An elite showcase of the international caliber fashion talent that exists right here in Victoria, this event dispels the tired myth that our city has no real style. As holiday parties, cold weather, and long nights fast approach, the runway shows present Victoria’s best looks in holiday wear, cruise attire, and lingerie, all available from local Victoria boutiques and designers.

As a budding cultural institution, Victoria Fashion Week aims to promote the city’s existing fashion industry, discover new talent and create an internationally acclaimed fashion culture. Strike Midnight shines a light on the incredible fashion scene that already exists, revealing to ourselves and to the international community that we are more than ready to host our first full-scale international Fashion Week. All profits from the event will go towards funding the first full Victoria Fashion Week, slated to take place in March 2018.

So put on your best shoes, step into the unexpected, and experience Victoria’s fashion culture in a whole new way! The clock is ticking. Get ready. Strike Midnight is nigh!
