Salmon Festival on the Skagit River

Skagit River Salmon Festival


The Skagit River Salmon Festival celebrates diverse partnerships between local, state and federal governments, Tribal Communities, local utilities, businesses and non-profit organizations to inspire conservation of the amazing Skagit River, its rich cultural history and abundant natural resources.

Could you ever imagine our beautiful Skagit County without the Skagit River? It’s almost impossible to do.

The Skagit touches just about everyone who lives here. The quality of life we enjoy comes from the Skagit River—electricity for our homes and businesses, quality water to drink and irrigate our crops, livelihoods for our fishermen, and a place for our families to play, picnic, camp and hike.

Join us in September at the Edgewater Park in Mount Vernon for a free, fun-filled experience for families featuring:

  • Youth Activities and Crafts
  • Recreational and Educational Booths
  • Live Music and Cultural Opportunities
  • Great Food and Salmon BBQ
  • Beer & Wine Garden
  • Commercial Arts & Craft Vendors
  • Silent Auction
  • Ray Reep Salmon Derby
  • And much, much more!

Through the day’s events and activities, participants will come away with a greater understanding and appreciation of our Skagit River, our salmon resources, and the many communities it sustains.
