Croquet at the Empress – The Return of a Bygone Tradition

On August 26, 2018, a well-heeled gathering will take place at Fairmont Empress, with a civilized game of croquet that makes its elegant comeback at Victoria’s most iconic property. Imagine a social affair on the front lawns of the storied Empress Hotel (recognized by National Geographic Travel as on of the 21 Most Iconic Hotels in the World), with green well-manicured grass and flowers in bloom – a civilized Croquet tournament, an intriguing step-and-repeat floral media wall for selfies, lounge furniture, culinary delights and craft cocktails on the social lawn for an afternoon tête-à-tête, summer games of a bygone era, and guests who arrive dressed to impress. It is a beloved story, being retold in a very new way, in keeping with the hotel’s stunning $60 Million restoration.
