Great Friends

The 2016 festival has come and gone and was a great success!

Thank you to all of our sponsors and supporters, our volunteers, our performers, and everyone who attended – We could not do this without you!

Check this site periodically for bluegrass events throughout the year, and of course for information about the 2017 festival!

2016 marks the 14th year that the Sooke River Bluegrass Festival will be held on Father’s Day weekend at the Sooke River Campground (aka the Sooke Flats).

The festival is family friendly and features an array of local & visiting acoustic talent, food & merchandise vendors, instrument workshops and beautiful scenery.

Join us June 17-19!

Thank you to our festival sponsors!
