Once known as the Pipefitters Building, where ships piping systems were constructed, the Pipe Shop Venue is an exquisite restored heritage building. Originally built in the 1940's the Pipe Shop is located in the Shipyards, in the heart of Lower Lonsdale, which commemorates the thousands of men and women who worked in the area from 1906-1992. Over 450 ships were launched from this site during the many years of operation including merchant marine vessels and victory ships.
We're excited to use this historic venue for the BC Cider Festival, on May 5th, from 2-6pm. It will be Vancouver's most comprehensive gathering of cider producers from BC and beyond. This is a tasting event, please pace yourself so you can experience the breadth of cider in BC. Located along the waterfront, the Pipe Shop is easily accessible via the Seabus, and there is limited paid parking in the neighborhood, but please don't drink and drive.
The Pipe Shop, which is at 115 Victory Ship Way, from the Quay just walk east along the waterfront, it's just past Tap and Barrel.
