One of Canada's longest running community events, the Steveston Salmon Festival, is back again on Monday, July 1.

The City of Richmond, Steveston Community Society and Richmond Agricultural and Industrial Society will present the 77th annual Steveston Salmon Festival across Steveston Village.

The one day community-wide celebration features a parade, live music, performances, food and much more. It kicks off at 9:30 a.m. with the Kids Bike Parade followed by the official festival parade from 10 a.m. to noon, starting at Garry Point Park and ending at Moncton Street and Railway Avenue.

A major highlight of the festival is the Salmon Bake, which is just one of many culinary delights for visitors to experience. The pancake breakfast will begin at 8 a.m. in the Steveston Community Centre parking lot at 4111 Moncton Street, and food trucks will be located throughout the festival to provide numerous culinary options all day.

There will be two live music zones with performances from noon to 7 p.m. Dr. Strangelove will perform from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Roving entertainers will keep crowds amused around the village, including jugglers and stilt walkers.

New and returning programs for this 77th festival include:

  • The Japanese Cultural Show with demonstrations and performances
  • Sammy's Fun Zone where younger attendees can experience face painting, interactive games and button making
  • A Youth Zone with music and games
