Salmon Festival Arrives

Take advantage of this weekend’s awesome weather in the Lake Oroville real estate market and come on out to Oroville’s 16th Annual Salmon Festival, being held today and all day tomorrow.

The celebration kicks off with Salmon and Tri-tip BBQ at the Feather River Nature Center at 6:00pm tonight and continues tomorrow from 10am-4pm with tours of the Feather River Fish Hatchery, the Downtown Oroville Street Fair, and the 10K Salmon run.

Every September for the past 16 years, the streets of Oroville between Historic Downtown and the Feather River Fish Hatchery burst with fish-flavored activities during the Annual Salmon Festival, a day of fun, food, music and information.

On this special day Oroville celebrates the thousands of spawning salmon that annually make their way from the ocean back up the Feather River.  Environmental education, music, salmon tasting, tours of the hatchery, and fun for kids and adults highlight this free event.

The Historical Downtown Oroville comes alive with a pancake breakfast, certified farmer’s market, live music, craft fair, and Family Fun Day

At the Feather River Nature Center, guests can experience the Maidu Salmon Ceremony with live dancing by local Native Americans.

This year you can nosh at the Salmon Court where recipes featuring salmon will be featured, take a spin in a kayak on the beautiful Feather River or join the fun at the Family Circus near the Municipal Auditorium.

A free shuttle to transport people between events is available.
