We are thrilled to announce that starting in the summer of 2017 the Fort Common will be available for wedding and event rentals.  

The Fort Common is a revitalized brick carriage courtyard in the heart of downtown Victoria. A blank slate, this 3000 sq ft urban outdoor venue is perfect for events large and small, including family reunions, weddings, corporate retreats and meetings. We've partnered with Victoria's best event planning, catering and rental companies to make your dream event a reality!

See our gallery below of past community events and our blog post of urban wedding inspiration.

The Fort Common will reopen as outdoor public patio seating in the summer of 2017 whenever an event is not booked in the space.  Stay tuned for more information!  



The Fort Common District is a 36,000 square foot adaptive reuse project  featuring an office building and a series of urban streetfront retail bays surrounding a revitalized carriage yard courtyard (The Fort Common). Since 2012, the block has undergone a series of renovations, including the award-winning revitalization and restoration of 1017-1019 Blanshard Street, and is now home to a vibrant mix of local and multi-national restaurant and retail tenants.

The Fort Common courtyard was designed to serve as a community venue for festivals, events or restaurant seating. In the summers of 2014, 2015 & 2016 it served as a venue for community fundraisers, political campaign launches, and major festivals (Lafflandia and Thinklandia). It was also the location of the local Food EcoDistrict community gardens, which provide locally grown food for use by neighbouring restaurants. 

During the summer, the Fort Common is open as public patio seating and is the perfect spot to enjoy a summer lunch in the sunshine!
