Many local festivals enjoy using the grounds and auditorium. St. Ann’s Academy has hosted children’s festivals, food festivals and classical music festivals. Some past events include VicFest, Easter Eggstravaganza, the Intercultural Association’s Luminara Festival, Cathedral Festival Orchestra’s outdoor concert program, Victoria Shakespeare in the Summer Festival and Lifecycles’ Celebration of Apples.

Academy Green is a large, open grassy area located in front of the Academy building and to the west of the main driveway. It is an appropriate area for large tented events (see Notes for Tented Events). The area measures approximately 65’ by 130’ (20 x 40 metres). A single tent of 60’ x 120’ can accommodate 350 people for a dinner and dance reception while 450 people could luncheon in the same space. This space may be augmented with the use of the Orchard, a more rustic location without services.
