It’s a hectic season for all you retail, hospitality and restaurant workers! That’s why we’re throwing a fun and relaxing worker’s appreciation night. So relaxing, in fact, that you’re encouraged to show up in your favorite jammies! So bring your coworkers, friends or fam and jam out to music by Grapefruit Is Impossible!!
All funds raised at the door and from the food will go towards local workers Mohammed Adam and Marwo Abdi, to help bring Marwo’s family to Canada through private sponsorship! For more information about their story and to donate, please check out their website:
Hope to see you on the 20th for a funky night of music, dance and footie pajamas!

The Victoria Event Centre will be completing a new and detailed accessibility audit at the beginning of December, and is working to improve the accessibility (and accessibility information) of the venue. One of the washrooms has recently been modified to accommodate wheelchairs. The on-site elevator is currently undergoing a recertification process, and until that process is complete we cannot consider the venue to be wheelchair accessible. The VEC will post updates as new information is available.
– this is a 19+ event
– the VEC is a licensed venue and will be serving alcohol
– washrooms will be gender-neutral for this event
This event is taking place within Lkwungen Territory. In respect to this, we strive to maintain and sustain a decolonization framework while we challenge the institutions of capitalism.
