The Wenatchee River Salmon Festival is held each year to celebrate the return of the salmon to our northwest rivers. The rivers that are home to the salmon also provide sustenance for birds, frogs, salamanders, foxes, deer, bugs, bears and countless trees, bushes, and flowers. Learn about the connections between our rivers, salmon and people, and other wildlife and habitats through educational and recreation activities.

  • School Days: Sept 19 & 20.  The Salmon Festival will be open for north central Washington schools attending the award winning, “School Days” on Thursday and Friday.
  • Free Family Day: Sept 21.  Salmon Fest Saturday opens the gates at 10 am and runs until 5 pm. It is free for all ages! Come explore nature in an “Edu-taining” way!!

The Wenatchee River Salmon Festival is a natural resource education event held every fall, with 2 school days and 1 community day. The Festival is held on the grounds of the Leavenworth National Fish Hatchery off Icicle Creek Road, located at the mouth of the scenic Icicle Canyon near Leavenworth, Washington.

An exciting menu of hands-on activities and “edutainment” gives students from throughout North Central Washington a unique opportunity to discover and appreciate the complexities of the natural world and the significance of salmon to people of the northwest.
