2023 Beer + Build event hosted by Above90 Lighting during Design Victoria. Participants drank beer at Herald Street brewery and built RBW Dimple or Crisp sconces to take home.

Following hot on the heels of a successful launch last year alongside GRAY's DesignCon, the second edition of the festival will feature local, national and international collaborations including exhibitions, talks, workshops, tours, film screenings and fashion shows. 

Visit beautiful Victoria B.C. this May and experience the unstoppable creative ambition of local designers and design businesses as they create special installations, exhibitions, events, open houses, tours and workshops for visitors alike.

Enjoy design on the island, access creative studios that are not normally open to the public, learn more about the stories behind familiar businesses and get inspired by the design ideas and creative work being produced in the city! The festival includes design in many forms, from architecture, interiors, fashion, and landscape, to products, graphic design, illustration, software, and the user experience.

Design Victoria has partnered with FRS Clipper to create a special weekend getaway, May 9-12, 2024. Coming from Seattle, guests can enjoy the four-day festival celebrating design in the vibrant capital city. 

Your experience starts with VIP admission to the Design Victoria launch party featuring free premium drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic), delicacies by local chefs, live DJs and full sound system, and custom design installations that light up the night. FRS Clipper guests will also receive exclusive, reserved access to a selection of popular (and likely sold-out!) events. Book your getaway today!
