Springtime in Sooke – Cherry blossoms, daffodils, tulips. A season of renewal is upon us as the days get longer and the weather gets warmer. For the last 20 years, another sign of spring in Sooke has been the Sooke Rotary Club‘s annual auction and spring fair.

This year’s fair, the 20th anniversary of this important fund raising event for the Rotary Club, will be held Saturday, May 1, 2010 from 10:00am to 10:00 pm. As usual, the entire SEAPARC leisure complex on Phillips Road will be taken over with exhibits from local businesses, fabulous food, and dozens of items up for sale in silent and live auctions.

This year will be a little different in that the Rotarians are hosting a community party with the theme “Sooke – A Great Place To Be!”

Don’t miss:

  •   Business Expo
  • Children’s Play Area
  • Art Show and Sale
  • Community Dinner
  • Silent and Live Auctions
  • Sooke’s O-Zone Display (from the Olympics)
  • Used Bike Sale

  • Raffle, door prizes, and giveaways

Everyone is invited, from new residents to long-time Sooke-ites to those that don’t yet live here. Mark your calendars and come on down on the first to enjoy the bargains, the sights, sounds, and smells of the Sooke Rotary Auction and Spring Fair.

Driftwood Santa Christmas Ornaments

One of the oldest and biggest craft fairs on the Island goes this weekend, November 20 – 22, 2009. The All-Sooke Arts and Crafts Fair is taking place in the Community Hall building in Sooke. Over 60 exhibitors on two floors will be there, along with food and entertainment.

Come on out and get some Christmas shopping done and get ready to deck your halls this coming season! Admission is free and the show runs 10:00 – 5:00 on Saturday and Sunday and 1:00 – 8:00 on Friday.

On a side note – while we won’t be at the fair (couldn’t get a table!), my wife Margaret still has her famous Driftwood Santa Christmas Ornaments for sale. You can call her at 250-508-9122, or order online.

All-Sooke Arts and Crafts Christmas Show Runs This Weekend

Looking for local, hand-made Christmas crafts and decorations? There are many arts and crafts fairs throughout the Capital region around this time of year. What a wonderful opportunity to support arts in your communities and find those unique gifts that are treasured by their recipients for years to come.

One of the largest and longest-running Victoria area Christmas craft fairs is the annual All-Sooke Arts and Crafts Christmas Show here in Sooke. It runs this weekend, from November 14 to 16, and features over 60 local artists and crafters displaying and selling everything from paintings, jewelry, preserves, baking, ceramics and more.

It is going on at the Sooke Community Hall, 2037 Sheilds Road, Sooke (map) and the hours are from 1:00 – 8:00 on Friday, 10:00 – 5:00 on both Saturday and Sunday.

Completely shameless plug: You won’t find my lovely wife-to-be’s Driftwood Santas there, but they will be appearing at other craft fairs in Sooke and Victoria later this month, and you can purchase them online from the comfort of your computer chair.
