ABOUT SKOOKUM

A WEEKEND OF MUSIC, CREATIVITY, AND CULINARY EXCELLENCE

Framed by the shoreline forests of Vancouver’s iconic Stanley Park, SKOOKUM features an eclectic mix of contemporary music, food, and art – just minutes from the centre of British Columbia’s largest city.

Alongside a music lineup of legends and new favorites, you’ll discover live art and multimedia installations by local artists, complemented by a taste-tripping selection of culinary experiences – from cool food trucks to remarkable dishes from some of Vancouver’s most notable chefs and restaurateurs. Thirsty? We’ll also be bringing you the regions best with tasting areas showcasing premium BC wines, local distilleries, and craft breweries. 

 

THE MEANING OF SKOOKUM

SKOOKUM is proud and honoured to be working with the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Nations. We are grateful for their support in welcoming this inaugural festival onto their shared territories. To learn more about this collaboration click here.

Originating from the historical Chinook Jargon of the Pacific Northwest, SKOOKUM translates to strong, brave and impressive. It also means celebration. Connect with that spirit this September and experience the uniquely unconventional SKOOKUM.
