Ships to Shore – Tall Ships Sail to Garry Point Park


Just¬†a hop, skip, and a jump away from the Gulf of Georgia Cannery, at Garry Point Park, Ships to Shore will take place as a part of this year’s¬†Maritime Festival. On¬†June 3rd to 6th, four of the most renowned North American tall ships will be docked at the Point.

Visitors are invited to tour the boats, watch re-enacted battle scenes, sail on the schooners, and to learn more about how these large sail boats were used during their time. Four ships will be featured, two schooners: the Zodiac and the Adventuress, a merchant sloop, Lady Washington, and a clipper ship, Hawaiian Chieftain. (It is possible you have seen Lady Washington before, as she has been featured in films like Pirates of the Caribbean 3.)

The¬†event will also¬†feature Reel to Wheel¬†movie screenings of Peter Pan, staged entertainment, and more. Synonymous¬†to this, the¬†Steveston Summer Farmers’ and Artisans’ Market will take place in front of the Cannery,¬†on Saturday and Sunday, from 10am¬†until 4pm.¬†Free entry will also be offered to visitors to the¬†Britiannia Heritage Shipyards.
