Issaquah Salmon Days Festival (30th Anniversary)

Held in early October each year, this Issaquah Chamber of Commerce event is scheduled to coincide with the arrival of Pacific salmon in Issaquah Creek, the destination point of their 40-mile migration from Puget Sound. Before the festival began 30 years ago, the spectacle of the arduous upstream journey drew many visitors to the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery. Today more than 200,000 people attend the event. Project documentation includes the "ohfishal" cancellation stamp of the 30th Anniversary Issaquah Salmon Days Festival, souvenir lapel pins, press releases, official programs, Chamber of Commerce newsletters, a poster, and news coverage.
