Wenatchee River Salmon Festival – Free Family Day
September 19 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
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 recreational activities.
The Wenatchee River Salmon Festival is a natural resource education event held every fall, with 2 school days on Thursday and Friday and 1 community day on Saturday. 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.
