The 75th anniversary Steveston Salmon Festival will take place July 1, 2022, from 10am–4pm. Festivities will celebrate the rich history of the event through storytelling, demonstrations, hands-on activities, and activations by local artists, merchants, and community groups. Visitors will get an opportunity to share their personal memories and treasured moments in Steveston. Community is at the core of festival programming, which highlights the themes of family, fitness, and fun.
The traditional parade will be replaced with a number of festival zones spread across the village of Steveston. Visitors will be encouraged to explore the re-imagined, accessible festival format on foot, bicycle, scooter, or wheelchair! Live music, exhibitions, and more will stretch from Garry Point Park to Britannia Shipyards National Historic Site.
Leading up to the big day, visitors can also spot Steveston Salmon Festival programming at the Pacific Rim Kite Festival on June 25–26. There’ll be plenty to see at Garry Point Park in the sky and on the ground during this partner event — including video pop-ups where kite flyers can share a story about Steveston.
Those planning July 1 neighbourhood cookouts will be thrilled to hear that Salmon BBQ at Home will return this year. This ready-to-cook meal kit will feature fresh salmon and sides for the whole family. Orders are now open through June 21.
