Kids Building Block Festival

Stop by the Vancouver Street Plaza for an afternoon of hands-on creativity! You will use your imagination to make towers, cities, buildings, and more with handmade wooden blocks and shapes.
  • – This is a free all ages family event. Snacks provided.
  • This is an outdoor event. There will be spaced out pods set up for households to maintain their distance from each other. Dress warmly!
THANK YOU to volunteer, Allan, who made all of the wooden blocks and came up with this fantastic event!
The Vancouver Street Plaza is located on Vancouver Street between Caledonia and Pembroke.
The Vancouver Street Plaza is a community space made possible with the “Healthy Communities Initiative” grant from Community Foundations of Canada. This grant is designed to activate underused public spaces in equity deserving neighbourhoods.
The Vancouver Street Plaza project – in collaboration with the City of Victoria – includes a mural, little free library, seating, and a lending hub. The lending hub is a larger than life “little free library.” It is stocked with board games, chess & checker sets, puzzles, lawn games, art supplies, gardening tools, bicycle repair kits, a bike pump, and more! You can borrow these items for free everyday between 11am-7pm.
