Looking for a fun, educational, richly experiential Earth Day adventure? Then make (low-impact) tracks up Sooke on April 22. This family friendly shindig is evolving into an unpretentious, entirely volunteer-run local addition to the thousands of events in 192 countries marking the 48th annual Earth Day.
On the evolving menu: Green vendors; earth-friendly businesses; non-profit groups; Zero Waste Sooke’s first anniversary Sooke Repair Cafe; workshops; speakers; demonstrations; food trucks; an upcycled fashion show; a Save Our Coast Sooke orca sign-making project; music and entertainment; and much more TBA.
Exhibition hours will be from 10 a.m. to mid-afternoon. An Earth Day community dance will follow in the late afternoon and early evening. Admission for the day is by donation. Exhibitor tables will be priced at $10-$40 based on size and location.
Learn more about registering for a table, sponsorship opportunities and volunteer needs by contacting event organizer Marlene Barry at (250) 884-9955 or via email.
