Steveston Salmon Festival presented by YVR is Richmond’s marquee Canada Day Celebration. The people of Steveston have come together every year since 1945 to celebrate Canada’s birthday and the rich heritage of our community. The festival is famous for its salmon barbecue where over 1,200 pounds of wild salmon filets are grilled over open fire pits. A Canada Day Parade through historic Steveston village kicks off the festival. With over 80,000 people expected, the festival will feature multiple stages with over 50 performances, an expansive community parade, a big fireworks finale and many great activity zones to keep you entertained!
Thanks to the tireless efforts of hundreds of volunteers and the generous support of our sponsors, the Richmond Agricultural and Industrial Society organizes one of the largest Canada Day celebrations across the country!
