Event Details

Our fun, free envirofest will be held at our Noons Creek Hatchery and the Port Moody Recreation Centre’s ice rink, located just across the walking bridge at 300 Ioco Road.  We are very proud to announce the City of Port Moody, Pacific Coast Terminals (PCT) and Port of Vancouver, as again being tremendous sponsors of this year’s event.

This iconic environmental festival, the largest of its kind in the Lower Mainland, provides an opportunity for children to help release thousands of young chum salmon into Noons Creek to help these fish begin their four-year journey at sea, and to visit the hatchery with its fish-rearing pond and restored wetland.

Which Groups are Attending?

Environmental groups and artists are invited to apply to attend.  In the Port Moody Skating Arena, over 70 organizations will provide opportunities to learn more about community initiatives and environmental stewardship. In previous years, we have been delighted to host the following exhibitors, many of whom return each year:

  • The City of Port Moody (Presenting Sponsor)
  • Port of Vancouver (Sponsor)
  • Pacific Coast Terminals (Sponsor)
  • Mike the Reptile Guy
  • Port Moody Station Museum
  • Vancouver Aquarium’s aquabus
  • Plus many more.  Check out our full list of past exhibitors!

There will be First Nations artists and carvers, wildlife artists, Metro Van Regional Parks, amongst others.
