The Venue: Rockwood Centre

Rockwood Centre sits in a magnificent garden on a hillside overlooking downtown Sechelt. Built in 1935 to serve tourists brought by steamer for summer excursions, the Lodge is now a heritage building, the gardens a public park.

With the addition of the Festival of the Written Arts’ 450-seat pavilion, the Rockwood Centre is available for conferences, displays, arts and crafts events throughout the year.
