The Massive North Vancouver Shipyards Festival Returns With A Beer Garden


If you love live music, family-fun, and free entertainment, you are in luck.

The North Vancouver Shipyards Festival will be going ahead this September with 10 hours of straight music and fun. The popular event brought together over 15,000 people when it last occurred in 2019, and organizers are excited to bring it back this year.

Regardless of whether Step 4 of the Restart Plan occurs, the event will move forward as planned with additional safety measures in place and with a limited capacity.
