Events

Summer 2017

If you would like to celebrate Canada's 150th birthday in the United States, the Point Roberts Marina has lots of family fun, music and fireworks planned. See event below.

4th of July Parade - this is the only official event that has been pre-announced this Summer.
Parade starts at noon at the corner of Marine Drive and Gulf (Breakers parking lot) It runs East on Gulf and turns South on Tyee towards the Marina.

The Point Roberts Garden Tour is bi-annual and it was held in 2016, so the next one is in 2018.

The Point Roberts Arts and Music Festival has not been confirmed for this year. It is traditionally held on BC Day weekend.

On-Going Community Events

Local community groups prefer to coordinate their event announcements with the All Point Bulletin.  This is the best place to find weekly and monthly events.

Visiting Point Roberts

A geopolitical oddity, Point Roberts is a part of the United States that is not physically connected to it, making it a pene-enclave of the U.S. It is located on the southernmost tip of the Tsawwassen Peninsula, south of Delta, British Columbia, Canada, and can be reached by land from the rest of the United States only by traveling through Canada. It can be reached directly from the rest of Washington and the U.S. by crossing Boundary Bay by sea or air.

Restaurants

Currently, fewer restaurants are available in Point Roberts, several have closed recently. (Compass Rose, Brewster's and Eagle's Roost at the Golf Course) We recommend you call or check their websites to make sure ​restaurants are open, especially in the off-season.

Parks, Activities and Wildlife Viewing

The lifestyle here evens out economic differences - most of what we do "for fun" is free!
