All hands are on deck organizing an upcoming festival in Steveston that celebrates waterfront culture.

Sailors and land-lovers alike will be coming together this August, as the Richmond Maritime Festival returns to the Britannia Shipyards National Historic Site.

Music, games, exhibits, and performers will be out in abundance, and attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the local lore, history, and culture of the ocean-side area.

More than 10 wooden vessels are available to board during the festival, and would-be sailors will get to walk the decks on some of Canada’s oldest ships.

There’s also a large lineup of performers set to take the stage over the two days, including Good for Grapes, Tiller’s Folly, Halifax Wharf Rats, Eagle Song Dancers, and more.
