Stroll back in time with Steveston Alive! Walking Tour Vignettes this summer.

Each Saturday in June and July, talented drama students from Hugh McRoberts Secondary School bring historic Steveston Village to life in five short plays about living and working here in 1917.


The Steveston Historical Society and the Steveston Museum are present the tour, now in its second year.

"We're delighted to be bringing these entertaining and informative stories back to the streets of Steveston this year. Tours sold out last summer, so be sure to catch this unique show while you can,” said Linda Barnes, chair of the Steveston Historical Society.

Leaving from the Steveston Museum and Visitor Centre (3811 Moncton St.), a costumed guide will lead you through the streets of historic Steveston to view each performance. Tours begin at 1 and 3 p.m. each Saturday, and are about 60 minutes long, covering just over a kilometre in length.

Tickets are $10, with children under 12 free when accompanied by a paying adult (maximum two children per adult). As space is limited, patrons are asked to book in advance.

The tour is made possible by the support of GF Financial Group and the City of Richmond.
