Steveston Village  2/20/2016


Steveston was originally a small town founded in 1880 by William Herbert Steves near Vancouver, British Columbia.

It has since been absorbed into the city of Richmond, British Columbia.

Steveston village is a historic salmon canning centre at the mouth of the South Arm of the Fraser River, on the southwest tip of Lulu Island in Richmond, British Columbia.

Since 1945 it has hosted an annual Steveston Salmon Festival on July 1, Canada Day.

The most southwestern tip of this southwestern suburb contains Garry Point Park, the site of the Steveston Fisherman's Memorial.

On Canada Day, Richmond has an annual festival in Steveston called the Steveston Salmon Festival.

This event includes a parade, and a huge barbecued salmon sale in front of the Steveston Community Centre.

Locally based municipal, provincial and federal politicians frequently show up at this event, usually as part of the parade and/or to hand out Canadian flags.

An annual Richmond Maritime Festival has been held at the Britannia Shipyard, National Historic Site every August since 2004.

It is a family event that celebrates the region's maritime heritage with live entertainment, ships, exhibits and demonstrations.

In 2002, Richmond hosted a tall ships festival which attracted an estimated 400,000 people to Steveston.

The success of this event surpassed many expectations and caused traffic congestion in the usually quiet area.

There was insufficient parking in the area, which gave locals the idea of selling "parking space" by using their driveways and front yards.

Despite the event's popularity, there was a revenue shortfall and the city decided not to host the event again.

During the summer weekends, an annual Richmond Night Market is held.

Toys, clothes, cell phones, and food are available along with live entertainment.

It is very popular and is usually crowded.

Richmond also hosted the 2006 Gemini Awards, which were held at River Rock Casino.

This marked the first time the ceremony had taken place on the West Coast, as it traditionally takes place in Toronto.
