Steveston Festival of Trees at the Gulf of Georgia Cannery

Steveston Festival of Trees

The Steveston Festival of Trees is a Christmas event at the Gulf of Georgia Cannery National Historic Site in Richmond’s Steveston Village in December.

Most years the event runs from December 1st to 31st every day except for Christmas Day from 10 am to 5 pm.

Christmas at Steveston Cannery

At Christmas time there are festive attractions throughout Metro Vancouver, and in Richmond one of the main holiday events 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 isn’t an attraction all on its own; rather, it’s just a very nice bonus when visiting the Gulf of Georgia Cannery Historic Site.
