This First-Ever Foodie Event in Steveston Is a Seafood Lover’s Dream
If you live in Vancouver (or anywhere on the West Coast, really), chances are you’re a seafood fanatic.
So, for those of you who love shrimp, crabs and all things fish, we have some exciting news: the very first Steveston’s Spot Prawn and Seafood Celebration came to town.
From May 6 to June 5, 2022, it will be a seafood lover’s paradise in Steveston. Probably the ultimate way to experience Richmond’s bountiful food scene, this event will offer locals the opportunity to buy the catch of the day straight from the boats returning to Fisherman’s Wharf, learn from professional chefs about the culinary scene, and tour the participating restaurants to indulge in fresh, local catches featured on menus throughout the month.
Basically, if you’ve been looking for an excuse to visit Steveston, the ridiculously popular, food-rich waterfront town of Richmond, or lose yourself in a seafood feast, this is your chance to accomplish both at once.
At the southwestern tip of Lulu Island, no character is missing when it comes to Steveston Village. The historic port along the Fraser River is now a tourist hub for its various local businesses that line its waterfront and its charming early 1900s-style architecture that serves as the backdrop for many movies and TV shows. It’s the ultimate destination for a day trip – or an interesting sight to see (and taste) while passing through Vancouver.
What better place could there be to taste the Pacific? Support local fishermen and businesses by visiting a participating restaurant or buying shrimp and seafood directly from the boats at Fisherman’s Wharf during shrimp season.
