The seeds for the Victoria Street Alive! project were sown in August/September 2018.

A group of residents developed a project to renew our local shopping and restaurant precinct in Victoria Street, Abbotsford & Richmond.


Victoria Street Alive! was born.

A subsequent grant application to the state government to fund our renewal activities was unsuccessful.


Undeterred, residents continued to develop the Victoria Street Alive! concept.

In April 2021, Victoria Street Alive! was one of twelve projects that was successful in receiving a state government grant as part of the North Richmond Precinct Project renewal scheme.

By 30 June 2022, Victoria Street Alive! had staged four major public events in spite of major disruptions caused by COVID-19.

The community response to these events was beyond our wildest expectations: healthy attendances and enthusiastic interest from key local businesses, organisations, and other stakeholders.

In response to popular demand forr markets, exhibitions and street poster installations, Victoria Street Alive! continues to work with local organisations to provide events that stimulate and renew our vibrant inner-city neighbourhoods of Abbotsford & Richmond.
