Ninilchik- Salmonfest!

SALMONFEST 2019 - CELEBRATE WILD SALMON! From its roots as a conservation-oriented fundraising concert to its ongoing unofficial reign as the Woodstock of Alaska, Salmonfest aims to deliver “three days of fish, love and music” by top national and local musical acts during the wet, green climax of Alaska’s long summer season. Each year, more than 8,000 people converge on Kenai Peninsula Fairgrounds for the celebration, which includes venders selling food, arts and crafts. More than 20 nationally known performers are expected in 2019, with scores of additional acts playing on the event’s four stages. Patrons typically spend a night or two in the vicinity, often camping at Deep Creek State Recreation Area. Proceeds go toward salmon conservation and other Alaskan environmental and cultural causes.
