This photo was taken from the window of the Steveston Museum on the last night of Songs in the Snow. If you didn’t make it, we hope this gives you an idea of what Town Square Park looked like all lit up; if you did make it, we hope it brings back fond memories. This year, we had our highest attendance yet with over 1400 people coming through the park over three nights.

We had wonderful musicians, lovely hot drinks, a selfie station, crafts, and more. We hope you and your family were able to join us for at least one of the evenings. We are grateful to our partners, the City of Richmond (Steveston Museum), and Richmond Arts Coalition; and to our sponsors: G&F Financial West Richmond, Telus, and the Province of British Columbia. We also have to thank the weather, for giving us three incredible rain-free events. It truly takes a village to put on this event, and a village to enjoy it!

We can’t wait to do it all again next year, and we hope you’re just as excited.

Steveston Alive! Walking Tour Vignettes returns for its third season this summer

Steveston Alive! Walking Tour Vignettes

The Steveston Historical Society, together with the Steveston Museum, are pleased to present our third season of Steveston Alive! Walking Tour Vignettes – a play in five parts during a walking tour of Steveston. Through these vignettes, residents and visitors alike will learn about what makes Steveston unique, and about how its early immigrants overcame hardship, and learned to live and work together in this diverse community. 

This year, the vignettes will be acted by talented drama students from Steveston-London Secondary School, with returning cast members from Hugh McRoberts Secondary.

Tours will leave from Steveston Museum twice daily on Saturdays in July and August, at 1 and 3pm.

Tickets are $12. Children under 12 are free of charge when accompanied by a paying adult. Book online now!
