Salmon Festival line up released as popular event prepares for opening at noon today

The 2023 Salmon Festival opens at Noon hour today, making for two
days of celebration  of the Salmon in Prince Rupert

In just a few short hours, the doors to the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre will open to the popular annual celebration of the salmon, with the Gitmaxmak'ay Nisga'a Dancers and Society ready to welcome their guests to the 9th annual presentation of the Salmon Festival.

The event which is free to the public offers two days of events from Dancing to Drumming  with participants coming to Prince Rupert from the Nass Valley, Haisla Nation, Haida Nation to join local groups in the celebrations.

Festival Organizer released the timetable for events over the next two days, to allow for some planning for those coming to town to follow their groups or take in those that have caught their interest.

As we previewed last week, the Salmon Festival also features a vendors area for those in attendance to pick up some creations of artisans or check out some food items.

As well, this 9th annual event features a Festival Quilt Raffle, with tickets going for 2 dollars each or 20 a book, the Draw is set for part of the Saturday festivities.
