fun-filled festival experience for families. We have several exciting changes and additions in store for you this year!
First, we’ve relocated to a new venue—Waterfront Park at the Swinomish Casino & Lodge.
This grassy waterfront park with snowcapped Mount Baker towering in the distance creates an amazing setting to spend the day celebrating the mighty Skagit River and return of the salmon!
We have a terrific lineup of new activities and entertainment you won’t want to miss, with something for every interest—young or old.
Come watch the fur flyin’ fun of the Puget Sound DockDogs
—the world’s premier canine aquatics competition. Utilizing a 40-foot pool, dogs and their owners from Washington, Oregon and Canada will compete to see whose dog can jump the farthest, highest and swim the fastest. It’ll be a thrill to watch these four-legged athletes compete for “top dog” honors.
We’re also introducing a Kidz Zone
run by the Boys & Girls Club of Skagit County,
with lots of energy-burning activities for the younger crowd to do. Providing smiles all around will be the clown team of Zig Zag & Ragz
with their amazing twisted balloon creations and face painting art. And don’t forget to explore FIN
the 25-ft migrating chum salmon. Climb inside and you’ll find a beautiful mural depicting watershed habitat and the animals that live there.
Here’s what else you can expect to find at the Festival:
• Great bands and musicians to entertain
• Local breweries on tap to keep you refreshed
• Tasty food choices to select from and enjoy
• Artisan wares to browse and purchase
• Native storytellers and cultural activities that inform
• Arts, crafts, and games for the whole family
On behalf of the board of directors, our Festival planning team, sponsors, vendors and volunteers, we thank you for your support and participation in the third annual Skagit River Salmon Festival. Enjoy the day!
