BGCA offers a calendar of community and special events throughout the year. These events provide affordable, family-focused activities and entertainment, strengthening community ties and engagement throughout the larger community of Greater Victoria.

Thousands of children, youth, and families from throughout the Greater Victoria area attend the annual Selkirk Waterfront Festival.  Many youth and families attend our seasonal celebrations such as the Halloween Monster Mash and Santa’s Pancake Breakfast. The Gorge Waterway Cleanup attracts more than a hundred volunteers in restoring the natural beauty of our local waters and shorelines.

If you are interested in volunteering for one of our special events, please see our Volunteer Opportunities page.
