Sunday, September 9th, 2018
8:00 AM to 6:30 PM

The Sunday right after Labour Day is always Metchosin Day. It is a fun day and free for the whole family. Starting at 8 am the five-kilometre run/walk leaves from the community hall and ends at the Metchosin Community House. There are valuable prizes (fresh Metchosin produce) for fastest in all age classes and terrific draw prizes. There will be pancakes for sale for runners, vendors, volunteers and the public.

Not only is Metchosin Day FREE, so is the parking. There is space for hundreds of cars adjacent to the village green.


Bike Parking is just behind the Metchosin Community House. To get here from Victoria by bike just take the Galloping Goose Trail to km 25 1/2 and turn left down Rocky Point Rd to Happy Valley Rd and then right on Happy Valley and just a short ride to 4450 Happy Valley Road.

Pets Welcome. All pets must be on a leash. Bring your bags for poop and scoop please! We will have water dishes throughout the village.

Vendors 100+ Including the Metchosin Farmer’s Market, held here each Sunday, will be here selling vegetables, meat products, fruits, crafts, artisan creations and more. There are food vendors to curb your hunger. We encourage you to compost your food waste in Sooke Disposal’s pink or green garbage containers to help keep Metchosin green!

Entertainment Entertainers featuring “Metchosinites” are featured throughout the day at the Main Stage. The Morris dancers will be around the field during the day.
