 Steveston Maritime Festival - August 8 - 10th
5180 Westwater Dr -  11am - 6 pm daily

Celebrate Steveston’s waterfront heritage at the 11th Annual Richmond Maritime Festival this weekend at the spectacular Britannia Shipyards National Historic Site. Learn local lore from a storytelling mermaid, wharf rat and statues brought to life. Enjoy live music, dancers, arts and crafts and hands-on activities for all ages. Eat at locally renowned food trucks and on Friday evening, take in an outdoor concert featuring the zydeco, swamp pop and folk sounds of The Swamp Dogs from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. But whatever you do, don’t forget to visit the bounty of beautiful boats moored at the 190-metre (600-foot) dock.
