First Night News

Announcing Our First Night Masters of Ceremony!

We’re thrilled to be sharing with you our official First Night co-emcees! They’ll be hosting your Main Stage programming on Saturday, December 31st in the Inner Harbour.


Firstly, if you don’t already know her, meet Vancouver Island Radio personality, Robyn Burns! Robyn grew up in Prince Rupert. She’s proud of her British Columbian roots and has a lengthy career in broadcast. Prior to hosting, Robyn worked both as a reporter and newsreader.


Last but not least, allow us to introduce you to Quebec City-raised Bruno Baronet, who’s coming over to Victoria from the mainland/ Vancouver, where he now calls home.

Bruno is French Canadian and has worked in French/ English bilingual film and television for over 20 years.

It’s safe to say we’re in great hands!
Looking forward to seeing you at Spirit of 150 Victoria – First Night!
‘Til then!

In Addition to our Main Stage Performances, Expect Other Fun and Exciting Activities at First Night! See What We’ve Got In Store!


Trial Bike performances by Beshano Trial Bike Club will be happening throughout First Night at Ship Point! These awe-inspiring acts will literally take your breath away and will be fun for the whole family!


We will also have a few Vic Harbour Ferry Ballet Performances to look forward to!


Last, but not least, look out for Puppets for Peace, who will be roaming the event grounds! Such fun! So cool!

We’ll see you at First Night, Victoria!
