47th ANNUAL SALMON FESTIVAL  

 

AUGUST 8, 9 & 10    

NUNNS CREEK PARK     CAMPBELL RIVER

Daily admission is $5.00 per person.  

Children 2 years and under are free.   

NOTE: Admission for 18 and under INCLUDES FREE 

Rides, Bouncers, Climbing Wall and Face Painting

 

The prime industries of Northern Vancouver Island are

Forestry and Fishing and our Festival is a tribute to them

  The "Logger Sports" event (our heritage sport) depicts the past and present logging practices through entertaining competitions between loggers and is presently the largest in Canada for prize money and number of events.   This years show will offer 2 World Championship and 7 Canadian Championships, along with other Open, Intermediate, Novice, ladies Youth and Teen events. International and local loggers will be competing for part of the proposed $33,140.00 prize package and maybe set a Canadian or World record.

Along with our regular competitions is a 4 man, 4 event "Best In The Bush" relay which is for local company competitors only.  This fun event determines which company can display the trophy and have the bragging rights for the year as having the best in the bush employees.  The competitors also receive cash prizes for their achievements.

For details click on Logger Sports

In keeping with our name, Salmon Festival, we will be presenting the 7th annual Seafood Cook-Off  Friday will be the Oyster Cooking Contest which is tasted and judged by the public and Saturday and Sunday will be various seafood competitions and demonstrations. There will also be a food booth with salmon meals to tantalize your taste buds.

For details click on Seafood Cook-Off

 

For the children and seniors, Salmon Festival provides special areas with events tailored for the enjoyment of all ages.  At the children's area, "Thrifty Foods Kids Zone", the young ones can enjoy a wide variety of  FREE  rides and events

 

For details check on Children's Events

 

For those who would like to relax and enjoy the talents of our local musicians wander over to the OUTDOOR STAGE.  Here we have some under cover bleachers to shade you from the elements, plus a covered area with tables and chairs where you can sit and enjoy a meal while listening to the music. 

 

For daily and evening entertainment click on Stage Entertainment

While taking in the many events offered at the Festival, check out what the local community groups and businesses in Campbell River have to offer at the Community Corner and Trade Show booths,  Because the Community Organizations do so much for our City, we provide a space free of charge where they can put up a booth to say who they are and what they do for their community or sell their raffle tickets or items for their charitable endeavors.

If you get hungry or thirsty we have a good selection for Food Booths and a Beverage Garden.

The most important source of funding is our

Corporate, Business and Community sponsors

Our 2013 sponsors are shown on either side

 

 Without them our Logger Sports, Seafood Cook-Off,

Children's Events and Entertainment would not exist

and we would not be able to support many other

community functions.

 

Please support our Sponsors

 


 

A major source of income for the

Festival is Gaming Funds from the

B. C. Lotteries & Gaming

THESE FUNDS ARE USED FOR THE FOLLOWING PROJECTS

  •  CANADA'S LARGEST WORLD CLASS LOGGER SPORTS,

  • SEAFOOD COOK-OFF (cooking competition & demonstrations)

  • FREE CHILDREN'S ACTIVITIES

Another major source of funding

is a Grant in Aid from the

City of Campbell River

 

This grant provides funds for the Canada Day and

Annual Salmon Festival Celebrations and

allows the Children's Events to be FREE at the

Salmon Festival to everyone 18 and under


 

Because of our grants and community support the Salmon Festival was able to assist 38 other community groups in 2013 through the FREE use of our assets and volunteer help with set-up and tear down of their event.

The savings to those charitable groups exceeds

$29,000.00 which helped their charitable cause
