Head to The Beachlands at the corner of Metchosin and Latoria roads in Colwood on the ancestral land of the Lekwungen speaking people this Saturday, July 27, 2024 from 1pm until 8pm for the Beachlands Eats & Beats Beach Party! It's live music all day with an international food truck festival, beachside beverage service with Victoria Beer Society and all kinds of fun by the ocean! We're celebrating summer with FREE fun on the street, sand, and sea.

Live music, street food and beach beverages

Picture yourself with your favourite people on the sunny beach by the ocean, cold beverage in hand, grooving to the summertime tunes of some of the best local bands. 

Our musical line up will showcase some of the best local bands performing live against the backdrop of the ocean, including The Soul Shakers, The Temps, Sugar, Heist, and Silvertone.

Sample international flavours from more than a dozen favourite food trucks, enjoy an ice cold beer or cider from the Victoria Beer Society beachside beer service, get into some beach games, and just chill to the tunes.
