Here are some fun facts about the Salmon Days Festival and the fish we adore:
In 1970, the Issaquah Chamber of Commerce presented the first Salmon Days festival.
The event grew out of the desire to replace the once-popular Labor Day celebration, as well as a need to celebrate one of Issaquah’s greatest treasures – the annual return of the salmon.
In the beginning, the festival attractions included the Kiwanis Salmon BBQ, salmon hatchery displays, an art show, children’s parade led by the late J.P. Patches, Little League football games at Veterans Memorial Field, fire crew competitions, and more.
In 1980 the Salmon Days festival and Grande Parade underwent two major changes that have been credited with altering the course of the festival: Salmon Days became a Seafair-sanctioned event and a festival float was created again.
To aid the growth process, merchandise was introduced, the first paid festival director was hired and large ohfishal spawnsors came on board in the ’80s
Today, Salmon Days is still presented by the Greater Issaquah Chamber of Commerce with the goal of providing a community celebration focused on honoring the miraculous return of the salmon.
