Kick off the season by dropping in for this day-long celebration of the patron saint of music. We’ll have performances and creations from an array of talented Victoria musicians and makers, guest host Janet Dirks (former CTV national correspondent), and a chance to meet St Nicholas himself! Either stay until the bitter end or leave in time to catch the Santa Claus Parade on Douglas Street.
