The community continues to be a working fishing village and is home to Canada's largest commercial fishing fleet. The bountiful sea and nearby farms allow restaurants to showcase local produce and seafood. A favourite destination is Fisherman's Wharf where you can buy fish fresh off the boats and indulge in some of the best dining choices in the city of Richmond.
Family friendly events abound in Steveston. The Steveston Merchants Association organizes an annual Easter Egg Hunt and Halloween in Steveston Village as well as the festive favourite, Christmas in Steveston Village. To the delight of the awaiting crowd, Santa arrives at Fisherman's Wharf in true nautical style, aboard a whale watching boat! Horse drawn carriage rides circle the beautifully lit village. Christmas shopping is a visual delight as the shops deck the halls in holiday style, and unique gift choices abound.
Heritage sites are plentiful. The Gulf of Georgia Cannery National Historic Site, Britannia Heritage Shipyard, Steveston Museum and London Heritage Farm are well worth visiting to learn about Steveston's rich history.
