Winter in the Village
What (from 2022): The charming waterfront village of Steveston in the city of Richmond slips into full-on festive mode with a month-long menu of family-friendly (and often free) Yuletide events, activities and selfie-ready illuminations. Expect sparkling storefronts and boats at Fisherman's Wharf, the festively-decorated Winter Tram pavilion, the Festival of Trees at the Gulf of Georgia Cannery, delightful Songs in the Snow carol performances and much more. The highlight afternoon for many is December 4 when a parade of classic cars trundles through the village and Santa himself arrives by boat before weaving around the village on a horse-drawn carriage. While you're here, warm-up with coffee, chowder or dinner at a village restaurant and polish off the remainder of your Christmas gift shopping at one of the unique village boutiques.
