Steveston Salmon Festival

The Steveston Salmon Festival, known as Canada’s biggest little birthday party!

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. This year’s Salmon Festival features performances from Honeymoon Suite and The Boom Booms, plus the Spirit of Steveston Zone, featuring food trucks and a licensed area, and a Carnival Zone featuring a midway and attractions for all ages.

The people of Steveston have come together every year since 1945 to celebrate Canada’s birthday and the rich heritage of our community. 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! On average, over 70,000 people from across Richmond, Metro Vancouver and the Pacific Northwest spend Canada Day with us!
