Victoria Day weekend
May 20, 2019
In 2019 the Victoria Day holiday is on Monday, May 20.
Victoria Day is a Canadian statutory holiday celebrated on the Monday preceding May 25 in every province and territory. It honours Queen Victoria’s birthday.
In Quebec this holiday is called “National Patriotes Day” (Journée nationale des patriotes).
Victoria Day is also commonly referred to as the “May two-four weekend” or the “May long weekend” and it marks the unofficial start of the cottage season where cases of beer* are consumed by hard working Canadians. That’s what we heard anyway. 🙂 This is also the weekend when many seasonal markets open in the County.
