The Sooke Harbour Festival is a chance to bring the communities of Southern Vancouver Island together for a day of arts, music and friendly competition.
Our coastal town is the home to immense beauty, incredible talent and an unimaginable venue for Sooke’s premier festival!
The event will be centered around a kayak and stand up paddle board race that will seek to attract everyone from the mom & pop weekend warriors to the expedition ready racers of the CRD region. Whether you’re after an excuse to dust off the ol’ watercraft, an exhibition of the finest vistas Vancouver Island has to offer, or the bragging rights that are sure to come . . . the Sooke Harbour Festival caters to all.
Wait, you haven’t ever tried kayaking or stand up paddle boarding? Well we’ve got something for you too. Come out and try either of these magnificent watercrafts in our recreation zone . . . for free!
We wanted to build a day that highlights the potential of the Sooke Basin, the importance of environmental awareness and encourages the protection of the great outdoors through its use. The Sooke Harbour Festival will exemplify the beauty of our coastal town while encouraging the exposure of local music, local artists and great local food.
If you’re looking for the excitement of wilderness adventure without the price tag and mileage usually associated . . . join us, this one’s for you.
