Getting to the Celebrations

Richmond Canada Day is located in heart of Steveston Village making getting to the festival really easy.  We encourage you to choose a sustainable method of transport to get to Steveston Village. Here are a few suggestions:

If you stroll to the festival on foot, you won’t have to deal with parking and you’ll burn a few extra calories that you won’t feel guilty for eating that bag of mini-donuts.

The ride into Steveston includes many great bike routes. Take the path along the waterfront or ride down the Railway corridor. Bring your bike and store it in one of our two locations. No bike lock needed as this will be a secured compound and operated just like a coat check. You can also leave your strollers here too. Don’t forget your helmet.
