Description

Please join us for the second edition of our fabulous Arctic Awards Gala on Thursday evening 18 October 2018. The festive evening (6:00-8:30pm) includes: the Northwest Passage Hall of Fame award ceremony, the unveiling of an exhibition on the history of arctic exploration, delicious food, a cash bar, live entertainment and music, and a wonderful silent auction with great prizes (wildlife tours, limited edition artwork from Cory Trépanier, cultural events tickets and more).

All proceeds support our educational and public programs and the preservation of our collections – so join us and be generous!

Last year, the Vancouver Maritime Museum organized the inauguration of the Northwest Passage Hall of Fame Awards Gala, to celebrate and commemorate the men, women, vessels and expeditions having entered the Canadian Arctic over time in their attempts to pass through the Northwest Passage. During the evening nominees for various categories will be awarded.

The Vancouver Maritime Museum is home of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) vessel St. Roch. St. Roch was the first vessel in history to sail from the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean via the Northwest Passage (NWP, 1940-1942), the first vessel to sail the more northerly deep water Northwest Passage route and the first vessel to circumnavigate North America (1950). It is a Canadian National Heritage Site.

Dress code: Formal - 1940’s style encouraged

Ticket price: $95 per person – limited quantities available.

We have limited parking facilities close to the museum.
