Celebrate Summer

This issue of Monday marks our third year publishing as Victoria’s Ultimate Get Out Guide

As summer sets in, theatres go dark, giving staff and crew time to catch their breath and prepare for the season ahead.

For those craving summer theatre, Victoria is the place to be with Blue Bridge Repertory Theatre’s wonderful summer season and not one but two programs of Shakespeare to take in.

There are also unique summer shows like SKAMpede and the Victoria International Buskers Festival on this month to keep theatre goers engaged.

Also filling our entertainment needs are summer music festivals. Phillips Backyard Weekender kicks off the summer fun July 8 to 10, quickly followed by Rock The Shores, July 22 to 24, for local music fans. For those wishing to take their music on the road, Tall Tree Festival, June 30 to July 3, and Cowichan’s Sunfest, July 28 to 31, add some summer sounds.

Big on everyone’s summer calendar is Symphony Splash, when more than 40,000 fans flood the Inner Harbour to experience the Victoria Symphony performing on a floating barge. The concert concludes with the beloved grand finale performance of Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture with fireworks!

Although Monday Magazine is more than 40 years old, this issue of Monday marks our third year publishing as Victoria’s Ultimate Get Out Guide, providing readers the only monthly publication where you can find exciting things to do in Victoria and around Vancouver Island every day of the month.

We are grateful to our longtime readers who stuck by us through the change and are enjoying our new format and we are thrilled to have new fans who like to be in the know about upcoming concerts, plays, events and shows.

On a personal note, I am proud to have been on the original concept and design team for the magazine, helping bring it to life and to have helped it grow into the engaging, colourful, well-respected product it is today.

Come along as we forge ahead into a summer full of music, entertainment, fun in the sun and beyond.   -30-
