The Victoria Highland Games Association was pleased to present two major events at its Craigflower Manor Property over June and July, 2022, with financial support provided by the Government of Canada.

To celebrate the 70-year reign of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on June 2, a beautiful Platinum Jubilee garden was established and celebrated in the backyard of the Craigflower property. Many thanks to the volunteers from the Pacific Horticulture College and the VHGA for their hard work!

And on July 1, the annual Canada Day celebrations at Craigflower brought together a variety of local musicians and dancers, community groups and the public under perfect weather conditions.
