More info about the Victoria Event Centre:
Washrooms are gender inclusive.
This event takes place within the unceded territory of the Lekwungen speaking peoples (as represented today by the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations). Let’s continue to dismantle the colonial structures that surround this city.
The Victoria Event Centre is on the second storey of a building up a rather steep flight of 27 stairs. There is a continuous handrail up the stairwell and our workers/organizers are available to provide assistance as directed.
