LEAVENWORTH, Washington—The Wenatchee River Salmon Festival announced today that it would be open this coming weekend, September 22-23 for our 22nd anniversary.
Many communities are impacted by the wildfires burning in North Central Washington; however, Salmon Fest is located out of harm’s way. Skies will be somewhat smoky and visitors need to be prepared for their own personal needs. The festival will modify some activities based on air quality, but visitors will still find the high quality experience, entertainment and activities that Salmon Fest is famous for.
The Wenatchee River Salmon Festival is held annually at the Leavenworth National Fish Hatchery and is devoted to fun-filled “edu-tainment”, a form of education and entertainment that is both fun and educational.
Salmon Fest’s mission is to connect families and youth to nature by helping people discover and appreciate the diversity and importance of the great outdoors, but also the beauty and interconnectivity of nature to our lives, and to understand and appreciate the cultural significance of salmon to all people.
So, come join us for this free and award winning festival, located just two miles away from spectacular Bavarian Leavenworth, the Ultimate Christmas town (featured on “Good Morning America”).
