Nourishing the Arts

Our communities are so much richer because of the incredible music, theatre, festival and art they offer. We are inspired by our local artists and excited to help develop a passion for creative arts.

The arts enrich our communities, and we proudly support these groups throughout the year. If you're an arts group looking for sponsorship, read more about our sponsorship process. 

Victoria Symphony
Through season sponsorship, outreach education concerts and Symphony Splash, Thrifty Foods proudly sponsors the Victoria Symphony. Each year our staff volunteers fund-raise during the Symphony Splash event - all the proceeds from our snack tent directly support the symphony.
