Christmas at Steveston Cannery

At Christmas time there are festive attractions throughout Metro Vancouver, and in Richmond one of the main holiday things to see is the Christmas at the Cannery Steveston Festival of Trees event.

For the month of December the Gulf of Georgia Cannery is home to dozens of elaborately decorated Christmas trees. The trees are designed and sponsored by local merchants and people vote for their favourites.

The Steveston Festival of Trees is a nice bonus when visiting the Gulf of Georgia Cannery Historic Site. It’s an interesting place to visit any time of the year, but especially pretty in December.

Festival of Trees Location

The Steveston Festival of Trees takes place indoors at the Gulf of Georgia Cannery which is located at 12138 Fourth Avenue in Steveston Village.

TIP: While in the area, if it’s not raining or you have an umbrella, go for a walk along the waterfront in Steveston Village. The Britannia Heritage Shipyard is just a 15 to 20-minute walk away and the route there on a nice day is beautiful.
