Meet me at the Empress “Lunch on the Lawn” event series, celebrates the special place that the Fairmont Empress has held in the heart of its community for more than 113 years.
Lunch on the Lawn – the quintessential summer pastime in Victoria, at the Empress, is back by popular demand for summer 2022. It’s the ultimate al fresco dining experience on the hotel’s iconic front lawns, surrounded by beautiful gardens.
More than a luxury hotel, The Fairmont Empress is where love stories unfold, family traditions begin and memories are created. From dinner dates on The Veranda to celebrations in the Crystal Ballroom, countless unforgettable moments happen every day at the Empress. Overlooking the stunning inner harbour and steps away from the city’s charming cobblestone streets, Canada’s Castle on the Coast is the social centre of the island.
Reserve a charming harbour-facing picnic spot, complete with blankets, pillows, and a basket brimming with delicious upscale food. Elevate your experience with the House of Dubet, or cocktails from the full Q Bar menu.
An event truly fit for a queen! A very special event in collaboration with House of Dubet sponsored by Chandon Sparkling Wine. Performances will begin at 1 pm
Seatings are available at 12pm, 12:15pm and 12:20pm.
