Over the course of the 10 events, everyone is guaranteed to hear sounds to please their ears and get their feet moving.

Along with the music, a vibrant collection of artisans and artists will display their wares along the walk from the Seabus, from Lonsdale Quay Market, Shipyard Commons, and Shipbuilders Square.

​​“It is more important than ever before to find new ways to connect with the community,” said City of North Vancouver Mayor Linda Buchanan. “I think at some point over the past year and a half we’ve all longed for the large social gatherings we couldn’t hold safely during the pandemic. That is why I am so pleased that Shipyards Live is able to launch safely. The City has long been committed to making our waterfront a vibrant and fun space for all people. This festival is one more way that we are making the City the place to be.”

Shipyards Live will be operated under current local, provincial, and federal health and safety guidance, and guests are encouraged to comply with all relevant regulations.
