Victoria Day is Coming Up!

It’s nearly May, which means the May long weekend — otherwise known as Victoria Day — is just around the corner.

Victoria Day was declared a public holiday by the Canadian government in 1845 in honor of Queen Victoria’s birthday. Interestingly, Victoria Day is always held on the second to last Monday in May, and this year, it falls on the Queen’s birthday! The May long weekend is always a fantastic way to kick off the summer with family and friends.

What better place to celebrate Victoria Day than right in Victoria? Take a staycation at the Victoria Regent Waterfront Hotel for the long weekend to celebrate. Wander through Old Town, visit the Royal BC Museum, or cook dinner with your family in your own fully-equipped kitchen while watching the lights on the BC Legislature. We look forward to welcoming you!
