Salmon Days celebrates 40th anniversary
April 6, 2009
The Salmon Days Festivals Office recently announced its theme for the 40th anniversary of the Issaquah festival — “Celebrating 40 Years of Great Returns – Still fresh. Still fun. Still free.”
This year’s theme is once again designed by Robin Spicer.
The Issaquah Salmon Days Festival, sponsored by the Greater Issaquah Chamber of Commerce, is from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Oct. 3-4 in historic Downtown Issaquah. The festival kicks off with the Grande Parade. The festivities continue with 270 arts-and-crafts booths mixed with 40 food vendors from around the world. This year, there will be five stages of diverse live entertainment. Memorial Park will be transformed into the Field of Fun, where children can climb, ride, bounce and make crafts.
The festival is the major fundraiser for the chamber of commerce as well as more than 60 other local nonprofit service groups and organizations who serve the Issaquah community.
