Canada Day at Home, presented by the Steveston Salmon Festival, returns for a second year on Thursday, July 1.

The interactive online program provides Richmond residents an opportunity to mark the occasion in ways that reflect their own values and beliefs. The event is organized in partnership with the Steveston Salmon Festival, an annual event rooted in history and heritage that provides an opportunity for people to come together in a display of community spirit.

This year’s Canada Day at Home line-up includes opportunities for the whole family to participate. The July 1 event will kick off with a Digital Parade at 10 a.m., which will be streamable from the City of Richmond YouTube channel and our homepage.

Additional content will be available throughout the day, including a Japanese Cultural Show, a special presentation about the Gulf of Georgia Cannery, and a virtual mainstage featuring performances by local artists.

The Digital Parade is accepting submissions from local businesses and organizations through Friday, June 18. Richmond residents can also participate in a Digital Home Parade and a virtual Horticulture Show on Instagram.

Additionally, the Steveston Community Society is offering a pre-ordered, ready-to-cook Salmon BBQ at Home dinner for four. Proceeds from the sale will support the Society. The deadline for pre-orders is Tuesday, June 22. Reserve yours today.
