COVID-19 and Lifting Restrictions

Welcome back to the Victoria Event Centre!

After many changes in operation since the beginning of the pandemic, we are happy to be regularly hosting live audience events in the venue!  For the past two years we’ve hosted events under reduced capacities and public health restrictions, doing our best to provide a space for artists to perform and audiences to gather, while maintaining a level of safety and comfort in line with public health measures.

Now that many of the restrictions are lifting, we’re excited to be transitioning into a more fluid performance experience.  This will look a bit different for different types of events, from seated cabaret or theatre shows, to full dancefloors.  We recognize that everyone will adjust to the lifting restrictions at their own speed, and encourage attendees to keep that in mind when interacting with others in the venue and to be patient with each other.

What to Know:

  • Masks are optional in the venue
  • Beginning April 8th, proof of vaccination will no longer be required for entry.
  • Unless otherwise noted at point of ticket purchase, seating is unassigned, and first come first served.  If you’re attending a seated event, please choose a location suited to your party size.
  • Hand sanitizer is available at wall-mounted dispensers throughout the venue.

If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact 

COVID-19 has had an enormous impact on the local arts community, and on us as a venue. Our goal is for the VEC to remain an important community gathering space in the months and years to come, and to be a hub for the revitalization of the arts communities that have been so heavily impacted.

All event information is available here on our website and on our Facebook page. If you are interested in hosting an event, please contact – we’d be happy to discuss what we need to do to make your event successful.

We look forward to hosting you in our space!
