'Songs in the Snow' returns in-person
Published 11:12 PST, Wed November 23, 2022
An annual favourite, the Steveston Historical Society’s Songs in the Snow returns for its first in-person event since 2019.
“We have a number of artists who have never performed at the event before, as well as a few returning favourites,” says Steveston Historical Society executive director Simon Newcombe. “Audience members can expect holiday classics as well as seasonal originals from our performers. We have also added a special ‘welcome back to in-person Songs in the Snow’ (event) on Nov. 26. This is a shortened special evening to thank the community for their ongoing support.”
Light refreshments will be available, and the events will also include a photo station and other activities for the whole family. People are encouraged to be considerate and take reasonable precautions due to the pandemic, says Newcombe.
“For those who are uncomfortable joining in person, or even those for whom four dates are not enough, please keep an eye on the Richmond Arts Coalition YouTube channel. Songs in the Snow videos from performers will go up the second week of December, including some exclusive content,” he adds.
Newcombe says the event wouldn’t exist without the community’s support, and is grateful for the strong interest in the virtual event over the last couple of years.
“It is the chance to come out and enjoy the spirit of the season while being able to see people you may not have been able to over the past few years,” says Newcombe. “Please join us this year as we come together to enjoy quality entertainment, fun activities, and the holiday spirit.”
Songs in the Snow runs at the Steveston Museum’s Town Square Park (3811 Moncton St.) on four Saturdays: Nov. 26 from 4 to 5 p.m., and Dec. 3, 10, and 17 from 4 to 6 p.m. The event receives contributions from G&F Financial, the Province of British Columbia, and its partners at the Richmond Arts Coalition.
