Where is Sooke?
Sooke is a growing community located west of Victoria, on Vancouver Island in British Columbia. Find your way to highway 14 and follow it west. Just after you cross the Sooke River, turn right onto Phillips Road and follow it to the campground (which is also the festival grounds!). Day parking is available at the SEAPARC Facility on Phillips Road.
