Welcome to New Westminster

Tourism New Westminster invites you to to explore its historical streets with a modern twist and enriched culture.

Whether you’re looking for great eats, fantastic shopping, fun parks and activities, celebratory festivals, or some relaxing time at the spa, this website is designed to help you
find it… and discover the best of New West!

New Westminster is vibrant all year round. The sizzling summer season brings festivals and events such as the weeklong Hyack Festival, Key West Ford Show and Shine, Columbia StrEAT Food Truck Fest, 22nd Street Festival, Uptown Live, and the list goes on! Enjoy walks along the boardwalk at the Quay and spend your hot days relaxing at New Westminster’s beautiful parks and restaurant patios.

As autumn approaches, activities move indoors, but the fun remains. Friends and families huddle around dinner at New Westminster’s finest restaurants and pubs. All the while, the arts community takes center stage as locals, and visitors across the Lower Mainland flock to indulge in art, music and theatre.

We’re made in New West!
