About the Event

The Gulf of Georgia Cannery is a National Historic Site. It’s a museum where guests can learn all about the history of local salmon-canning. There are educational displays highlighting the economic importance, manufacturing processes and other details about the cannery from past years.

For Halloween, the Cannery decorates its space with recyclable materials. In 2023, similar to previous years, the theme is The Haunted Sea. The venue is dark with black lights and a smoke machine. There aren’t any flashing lights or jump scares to worry about, so the event is great for families with young kids.
