Upcoming Events in Victoria BC

We host small events in Victoria BC and have the following guidelines:

  • Please support the musician by giving them a donation! All donations go to them 😀

  • We have a liquor license, which means we do have to remain within our capacity of 25 people in the space.

  • As our liquor license is “food primary,” we can’t allow dancing, unless the event is designated as liquor free. We’re working on having some liquor-free events in the near future!


Mondays! | 6:30 to 8:30pm | Sign up starts at 6pm | Free!

It’s back! Get back to the basics with our acoustic Open Mic night. Come out with your instrument or borrow our acoustic guitar or keyboard! Please bring 2 to 3 songs (we usually allow 2 songs each to start, with the option of a second round if time allows!). Beginners are most definitely welcome!

*Yes, the open mic is on most holiday Mondays! (Contact us if you’re unsure!)

We are licensed, carrying cider and local beers!


Monthly Event–usually the first Thursday of the month.

December 1, 2022 and January 12, 2023.| 7 to 9 pm | Free!

Share your writing–poetry, fiction, or non-fiction–in a ten-minute slot at our monthly Writer’s Open Mic! Our host is Toni Graeme, author of three published non-fiction books, writer’s coach and member of some writer’s groups around town. All experience levels are welcome–beginners to experienced writers.

*Please note, the event sometimes ends before 8:30, if readers are finished at this point.

NEW! We are collecting submissions for an anthology. Please see gigiscafe.ca/anthology for info!

Sign up ahead of time at info@gigiscafe.ca or at the start of the event!
