“Art in the Park” ARTS FESTIVAL… in "incredibly artsy” SOOKE!

SOOKE, a scenic 40 minute drive from downtown Victoria, is a highly regarded destination for artists, art lovers and visitors from around the globe who want to experience our wealth of great visual and performing arts!

With our fabulous, peaceful, coastal landscape, many world-class artists, artisans, writers, musicians and performers have chosen to live in our peaceful, secluded, seaside paradise, finding inspiration from their incredible surroundings to create wonderful works in every medium and discipline.

Receiving huge local support, their talents are showcased all around our community at our many galleries, gift shops, restaurants, cafes, markets, fairs, art studios, bed and breakfasts, country inns... and lots of exceptional, annual Visual and Performing Arts Events held throughout the entire year.

One of these very popular events is the “Art in the Park” ARTS FESTIVAL. Taking place annually since 2003, it’s an initiative of the Sooke Community Arts Council, with generous support from the District of Sooke and the Province of BC through the BC Arts Council.

Located at a stunning waterfront venue, Ed Macgregor Park is located on West Coast Rd. (Hwy 14), just west of the downtown traffic lights at Sooke Road and Otter Point Road in the center of Sooke. Watch for our signs pointing the way! Free admission!

Under white festival tents in this beautiful park on Sooke Harbour, Art in the Park features artists and artisans from the Sooke region and around Vancouver Island, who will be displaying and selling their unique, quality fine arts and crafts, including painting, mixed media, printmaking, sculpture, photography, pottery, fibre arts, stained glass and jewelry, etc.

To showcase our great musicians and performing artists, exciting, live entertainment will take place all weekend at the park’s brand new Spirit Square outdoor stage. Enjoy singing, dancing, including Carole Cave’s Sooke Dance Studio students, theatrical pieces… and lots of great music, from folk to classical, including members of the renowned Sooke Philharmonic Orchestra.

Delicious food will also be available for sale on site... so make a day of it! Have a picnic in the park and take a stroll down on the boardwalk overlooking spectacular Sooke Harbour.

It's a lively, fun filled weekend that’s not to be missed! There’s something for everyone to enjoy! Mark it on your calendar... you won’t be disappointed!
