After building what is now recognized as a national sports capital, Langford is turning its attention to arts and culture. We’re fortunate to have our local West Shore Arts Council, who facilitate events such as the annual Light Up the Hills event in our Westhills neighbourhood. Our growing number of students, as well as local community groups, regularly perform at our local school theatres. The Station Avenue Revitalization project (coming Fall 2021) will showcase local artists, highlight the area’s history, celebrate local First Nations and create an inviting cultural precinct for the entire community to enjoy. Soon, we’ll be introducing our plan for a performing arts theatre to bring even more exciting events and opportunities to our City. Langford will continue working towards creating a vibrant arts and culture scene for residents and visitors alike.

Station Avenue Revitalization
The dynamic, new community arts and cultural project of Station Avenue will fulfill a long-term vision for the development of a cultural precinct in Langford. Working in collaboration with the Island Corridor Foundation (ICF), owner of the private lands between Peatt Road and Veteran’s Memorial Parkway, the project will significantly enhance the neighborhood by restoring and revitalizing the area.
Music in the Park
Every Sunday in July and August from 2 pm to 4 pm, Music in the Park takes place at Veteran’s Memorial Park. This free, family-friendly event features local bands and musicians who perform songs in a variety of genres. Music lovers descend on the park, with many bringing their own blankets and chairs to sit on, while others dance along to the music. The nearby playground, spray park and basketball court at the park ensure everyone has some fun while enjoying the tunes.
