PEP: Earth Day



Presented by Transition Sooke and our working group Zero Waste Sooke in association with Creatively United and the Sooke Fall Fair.

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

Sincere thanks to our major funder, the District of Sooke, and our first wave of sponsors: the Rotary Club of Sooke,  Wittich Environmental Services, Interactive Construction and Viridian Energy Co-operative.  Also warm appreciation to Phoebe Dunbar for the first of our door-prize donations — a piece of spectacular wood art from her Phoebewood carving shed. Thank you, Phoebe!
