About us

The Victoria Military Music Festival Society was established in 1993 hosting its first festival in 1994, one month before Victoria hosted the Commonwealth Games. The Society has been fortunate to engage with many performers from across Canada and the international sphere.

Working with a variety of diverse community partners, including government and non-government organizations and agencies, we develop artistic and related programs that provide an appreciation for the musical, military and physical skills of local, provincial, national Canadian Armed Forces, and the Armed Forces of other countries.

We especially encourage the development of opportunities to promote the musical, military and physical skills of local Regular, Reserve and affiliated Cadet unit bands.
