In the heart of the Pacific Northwest lies Richmond, British Columbia. Connected by modern public transportation, major throughways, ferry systems and Vancouver International Airport (YVR) — Richmond is easily accessible, ideal for visitors from any origin.

Richmond is a truly international city with its citizens originating from over sixty cultural backgrounds. Much of the recent population growth is from Asian immigrants, which is reflected in the City’s exotic shopping and dining. This authentic flavour weaves itself throughout Richmond’s festivals, restaurants and unique community neighbourhoods. Visitors are able to enjoy a myriad of activities from arts and cultural events, live stage shows, theaters and concerts, as well as museums, historical sites and galleries.

“The Richmond Sport Hosting Team did everything in their power to make our event a success. They took care of all the details; from helping with equipment set up, to offering expert advice on branding opportunities to providing sharpies for athlete signings. Every detail was thought of and accommodated. We can’t wait to host our next event in Richmond!”
