Ships to Shore – Tall Ships Sail to Garry Point Park


JustĀ 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’sĀ Maritime Festival. OnĀ 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-enactedĀ battle scenes, sail on the schooners,Ā and to learn more about how these large sail boats were usedĀ 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 haveĀ seen Lady Washington before, as she has been featured in films like Pirates of the Caribbean 3.)

TheĀ event will alsoĀ feature Reel to WheelĀ movie screenings of Peter Pan, staged entertainment, and more. SynonymousĀ to this, theĀ Steveston Summer Farmers’ and Artisans’ Market will take place in front of the Cannery,Ā on Saturday and Sunday, from 10amĀ until 4pm.Ā Free entry will also be offered to visitors to theĀ Britiannia Heritage Shipyards.
