Salmon Festival


“The celebration of the return of the salmon at the 30th Anniversary of the Wenatchee River Salmon Festival was a special event to remember forever! It’s all about connecting kids with nature”, said Festival Coordinators Corky Broaddus, Betsy McIndoe, and Chelan PUD’s Kristin Lodge. More than 1,600 elementary school students from throughout North Central Washington spent an “edu-taining” day with top natural resource specialists from around the Pacific Northwest. The Native American “River Ramble” program shared the cultural significance of salmon to all attendees. Indigenous people came from several Tribes, including the Wenatchi, Colville, Yakama, Nez Perce, and more.
