Attend a fun nautical experience this summer and see the Steveston waterfront turn into a massive shipyard.
The Richmond Maritime Festival Re-Imagined is coming back to the Britannia Shipyards National Historic Site this month. It will be a 2-day event which brings back to life the rich and nautical history of the shipyards.
There will be live music, boat builders, wood carvers and so much more. Best part yet, the 190m dock will be full of wooden boats and ships for visitors to see up close and personal.
What To Expect
The 18th annual Richmond Maritime Festival will take place on Saturday, August 21 and Sunday, August 22, from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. However, there is also an interactive map for those who prefer to participate virtually.
The entire site will be 8 acres of pure entertainment. In addition to the boats there will be food trucks and artists to really add to the festivities.
