Welcome to Bastion Square!


Bastion Square is located in the heart of downtown Victoria, B.C. The ceremonial entry arch, located at View and Government Streets, welcomes visitors to the original site of old Fort Victoria.

The square looks out on the Inner Harbour and boasts the finest restaurants, pubs, and cafes in Victoria. In the summer, its seasonal artisan market and many outdoor patios make it an ideal spot to visit!

Bastion Square Public Market


The 2014 Bastion Square Public Market opens for the season Thursday, May 1st, and is open every ThursdayFriday, and Saturday from 11 am – 5:30 pm until the end of September.

The market turns 19 this year! Stretching from Victoria’s waterfront on Wharf Street to Government Street, this colourful open-air market brings a vibrancy to Bastion Square with its wonderful array of locally produced arts, crafts, and entertainment. Watch artisans as they create their crafts, or sit and enjoy the market atmosphere at one of the local outdoor cafes.
