Family Day Weekend at Britannia

Join us at Britannia Shipyards for Family Day weekend!

Discover Richmond’s storied past over Family Day at Britannia Shipyards National Historic Site. Watch net mending and then try your hand at loading net needles in the Seine Net Loft, playing mah jong in the Chinese Bunkhouse, and embroidery in the Murakami House. And for the young, or young at heart, there are traditional children’s games in the field (weather dependent).

Participate in an exhibit scavenger hunt at the Seine Net Loft and learn how people lived and worked at Britannia Shipyards. Don’t miss a visit to the Innovation Station inside the Seine Net Loft to try marine-themed children’s activities.

Britannia Shipyards – Site Update for the Holidays

When water levels are predicted to be higher than usual, temporary flood panels are installed which protect our site from localized flooding. 

This means that unfortunately there will be no access to the Shipyard or Seine Net Loft until January 2, 2020. We encourage visitors to explore the other buildings at Britannia Shipyards during this time!

Britannia Shipyards is open 12:00-5:00pm every day, with the exception of December 25, 26 and January 1 where we will be closed for the holidays.

Winter in the Village

Get ready for the holiday season with Winter in the Village!

Between November 21 and December 31 Steveston Village will become a destination for those looking to enjoy the holidays and participate in a number of winter activities.

Britannia Shipyards will be celebrating Winter in the Village with ongoing activities and special events.

Every day, join us in creating a special holiday memento by decorating a wooden ornament for your Christmas tree. Meanwhile, kids (12 and under) can try their hand at the Steveston History Hunters Scavenger Hunt. We invite everyone to come and see the Heritage Building Light Display in the evenings.

The Winter Concert will be held December 1, 1:00-2:30pm. Buy your ticket at the door or register in advance by calling the City of Richmond Registration Call Centre at 604-276-4300.
