Victoria and the Olympic Peninsula make music together

Have you ever experienced the incredible Victoria Symphony Splash, performed on a barge in Victoria’s famous Inner Harbour? Approximately 40,000 people gather on the nearby streets and the BC Legislature’s lawn to enjoy this annual event.

Let’s continue the neighborly ties between our cities. Were you aware of the queen city’s 150th anniversary celebration last August, when the iconic Coho Ferry, which runs between Victoria and Port Angeles, had its horn incorporated by the composer, Tobin Stokes, in his celebratory Inner Harbour Overture?

When you attend this annual musical extravaganza, make sure you aren’t on the last ferry back to the Olympic Peninsula. You don’t want to miss its traditional grand finale, Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture, with all the wonderful sights and sounds of this unique venue. Our sister city has so much to share, and we look forward to sharing our new venue over here on the Olympic Peninsula in return.

Victoria residents: Come celebrate Sequim’s Centennial with us at the peak of our lavender season! We’ll even let you catch the last ferry at the end of our inauguralĀ Washington Music Fesival.
