Shipyards Festival

North Van, North Van

Get ready to party at the Shipyards one last time before summer’s over, because the largest free event of the year is back next month, and you won’t want to miss it! Though it’s technically happening on the first official day of fall this year – we say that the annual Shipyards Festival is the ideal summer sendoff, complete with live music, local eats and drinks, and a full day of family fun.

Whether you want to check out the multi-stage performances, chill at the site-wide beer garden, or venture to Carrie Cates for the newly added Car Free Day North Vancouver – you’ll have plenty of options here (and even more food trucks to choose from). We play at 5pm half hour set on the shipbuilders stage!

Steveston Salmon Festival Canada Day

Cannery, Steveston

Alice and Norine Cannery stage at 1 and Boardwalk stage at 3! The Steveston Salmon Festival began over 75 years ago with the goal of raising funds for the community centre to build a new playground. Since these humble beginnings, it has become an annual Canada Day celebration that brings together the diverse individuals that make this place home and showcases the spirit of Steveston – all about community. Please join us this Canada Day as the Steveston Salmon Festival returns to full operations for the first time since 2019!

Celebrate the unique heritage, diverse cultures, and outstanding contributions of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples. Indigenous Education and Community Engagement at VCC is hosting their annual Indigenous Day celebration on June 20. This year's theme is the celebration of Indigenous diversity.
