Port Alberni Events – Salmon Festival 2015
September 4, 2015 - September 7, 2015
Back by popular demand, Port Alberni’s annual Salmon Festival is now in its forty-fourth year of running and promises lots of entertainment as well as the obvious draw: salmon fishing!
Offering over $55,000 in cash and prizes, enthusiasts can participate by attending the fishing derby or just buy a derby ticket – even if you don’t want to fish, you can still support the derby by getting a ticket – that way you too can have a chance at winning a prize! There are plenty of other activities to look forward to this weekend as well, including a karaoke contest, raffle prize draws, a dunk tank, children’s activities, the Bread of Life Fisherman’s Breakfast in the mornings, and entertainment all weekend long.
For more questions on registration or details on the event schedules, please visit the official website.
