"I am proud to proclaim Saturday, February 12th as Victoria Tea Festival Day in honour of North America's largest public tea exhibition," said Victoria Mayor Dean Fortin. "I encourage Victorians to take part in the festivities at Crystal Garden, and to celebrate Victoria's multi-cultural tea heritage and on-going vibrant tea culture."

After passing the Victoria Tea Festival Day proclamation at Thursday night’s Council meeting, Mayor Dean Fortin raised a cup of tea to toast the Festival with fellow Council members. Mayor and Council were joined in the toast by the Victoria Tea Festival Organizing Committee and Sponsors of the festival in the Council Chamber’s public gallery.

This is a wonderful success story for our community.”
