Celebrating the Victoria Community Spirit and the Arts

Chard was proud to be a sponsor of two celebrated events in Downtown Victoria this summer – the TD Victoria International JazzFest and the Victoria Canada Day Celebrations. Both events were well-attended, drawing together the tight-knit city of Victoria to celebrate the community’s spirit and a wide range of talented artists.

Now in its 36th year, the Victoria Jazz Festival brings world renowned artists to play on the local stages of Victoria. Chard was pleased to support the festival for the fourth year in a row, acting as show sponsor to Gregory Porter at the Royal Victoria Theatre on June 27th. Along with a number of headline performances, free concerts entertained crowds of music lovers across the city throughout the ten-day festival.

With over 50,000 people heading into downtown Victoria on July 1st, Chard was also pleased to once again support Victoria’s Canada Day celebrations. This family fun day offered live music, dance performances, plenty of food, a variety of information booths and spectacular fireworks to end the day in the Victoria Harbour.

Building community is an essential part of what we do at Chard Development, and we value the opportunity to help support Victoria’s strong summertime spirit through sponsorship of these events. We hope you had the opportunity to enjoy these festivities and look forward to continuing to support all of the communities in which we build.
