It's time for our 7th Annual Wild Salmon Day Celebration! We are so excited to come together for a safe celebration of our favorite fish. Join us for music, inspiring speakers, vendors, games, activism, food, and fun!
The event is free and family-friendly. So come on down and celebrate one of the best things about Alaska, our salmon! There will be FREE Wild Scoops ice cream for the first 100 people (yum!) and Salmon Hookup Truck will be serving up tasty bites.
Our Wild Salmon Day celebration is a community event designed to bring people together in honoring our shared connections to salmon and the importance of healthy salmon habitat.
We're excited to announce Ava Earl will be joining the Wild Salmon Day festivities with some great tunes!
Singer-songwriter Ava Earl from Girdwood has checked off many life dreams - opening for Maggie Rogers, playing music festival main stages, getting recruited to run track at Northwestern University, and releasing multiple albums.
We're excited to announce one of our event speakers, Jackie Arnaciar Boyer - Campaign and Policy Director at Native Peoples Action and Native Peoples Action Community Fund.
FAIRBANKS WILD SALMON DAY
Wild Salmon Day Fairbanks - August 14
2 pm to 5 pm at Tanana Lakes Recreation Area
Join us for Fairbanks' 3rd Wild Salmon Day Celebration at the Tanana Lakes Recreation Pavilion at the end of South Cushman. This is a free, family-friendly community picnic where we talk salmon, eat salmon, and commit to protecting salmon. We'll have live music, singing, drumming, storytelling, tables and activities to join in from your local community organizations. And of course, we'll have free salmon and food!
**We are requiring masks for this event. The BA 5 variant is not nice, and we must keep each other safe. Masks on when you're not eating and drinking. Otherwise, you know the drill.**
Thanks to our partners Tanana Valley Watershed Association, Fairbanks Climate Action Coalition, Native Movement, Northern Center, and the Alaska Native Education Department for joining and helping us put on this event!
We'll be joined by drumming group Dene Eslaanh, and performers Jake Chavez, and Rachel DeTemple and Jon Oestreich from Fireweed Fiddle!
