Our happiest Happy Hour is back! Every Friday from 4 – 5 pm, join us in the cafe section of VEC for musical performances (and sometimes other types of performing arts). At the end of the hour, the floor will open up into an open mic.

The main focus of Dandy Lion Sessions is to give a space for some incredible emerging talent on our island to shine. By performing in a space that fosters growth for all types of art, these artists can grow their audiences and the performance may even lead to eventually playing on the main stage at VEC. The spirit of the open mic allows a place for artistic community to flourish and for local artists to network with one another in a cozy, comfortable setting. Sometimes we also feature artists who are not emerging artists, but rather established friends of our community who want to play a show for free and for fun.

Entry is free but donations are graciously accepted and 100% of donations goes to the artists!

We have a range of different teas, coffees, food options and incredible specials on local beer, wine, cider, kombucha, hi-balls and cocktails!

If you’re interested in being a main performer Dandy Lion Sessions, please reach out to sam@victoriaeventcentre.ca. All artists must send some examples of their work.

For the open mic, we have a limit of two songs (or poetry, or whatever it is you’d like to share!) We have a piano available in the space if that’s your jam. Feel free to also bring art supplies if you’d like to get creative while listening.
