SOOKE FALL FAIR – September 12 & 13
This year the Sooke Fall Fair Embraces Soil and Light. We will celebrate what the soil gives to us and how to care for it and include composting and organic methods in keeping our soil healthy. We will also be embracing the importance of light in not only growing but technology and how we can embrace two very important components of our earth together with water and air to provide healthy opportunities for us to embrace the wonderful gifts we have before us and to use them in a respectful manner to sustain the good health of not only ourselves but of our community by getting down to earth and looking to the sun.
Sooke Fall Fair Philosophy
The Sooke Fall Fair is a community fair that gives people an opportunity to congregate in the spirit of the “Rural Fair” philosophy.
The philosophy embodies:
Pride in local natural resources
Pride and focus on individual and family endeavours
The integration of young and elderly, able and disabled, participator and spectator.
The spirit of volunteerism in which our community has long prided itself.
The Sooke Fall Fair, in this traditional annual event is a reflection of Sooke’s strong community spirit.
