STORYBROOKE/STEVESTON INFORMATION




Planning a trip to 'Storybrooke', HERES THE 411

OUAT STORYBROOKE IS FILMED IN STEVENSTON, BC CANADA

Filming in the Steveston (Storybrooke) village IS DONE MON THRU WED ONLY.
They usually try to film the Storybrooke town scenes every two to three weeks.
Monday is usually the 'setup' and the actual filming takes place on Tuesday &/or Wednesday! Tuesday is probably your best bet if you want to catch actual filming. Be prepared for crowds. According to the locals the actors are very friendly and will come out and talk with the viewers/fans...especially Robert Carlyle...

Local businesses usually know if filming is going on the following week so a call to one of these merchants might prove very useful.

Most scenes filmed in Stevenson are outdoor scenes. Steveston filming is basically anything you see on 'Storybrooke' Main Street
There are a couple of places where they actually shoot inside the establishment but for the most part all of the indoor scenes are shot elsewhere.


Gary Point Park is where they shot the 'Henry's Castle Playground' scenes, the park is in walking distance from the main center of town.
The forest scenes, the mayors mansion, and some of the other scenes are also filmed elsewhere and not in Steveston, but not always the inside portion of the scene! The 'mayor's mansion' is located in Vancouver and the 'jail' is located in Fort Langley!


Here’s a list of sites/places to go to help you navigate Stevenson “storybrooke”


Stevenson Visitors Center! The Visitors Center/Museum also doubles as the Storybrooke Post Office!
The don’t do tours but they have plenty of Ouat info.


The Steveston Hotel...which is attached to The Buck and Ear which just HAPPENS to be the place where they filmed 'The Rabbit Hole' scenes (remember the Valentines Day episode...where the girls go out to a bar!!!). It is a stone's throw away from Gary Point Park! You can actually see the sign for Mr. Gold's Pawn Shop from some of the window's!

I think Wiley and I were talking about maybe leaving on a Mon or Tue and Staying until the following Mon or Tues, that way we can be there for some filming and have time for other things when they are not filming...Wiley, correct me if I am wrong, lol!
