The Salmon Festival also provides support to community endeavors by offering opportunities for community groups and businesses to earn revenue by taking part in our annual celebrations by providing security, entertainment, food, crafts and other services at our events. Community groups having a draw or raffle are encouraged to sell their tickets and promote their cause at our venues. 


The Nunns Creek Park development is a joint venture between the City of Campbell River, Salmon Festival, C.R. Minor Baseball, Men’s Baseball, C.R. Dog Fanciers, Skateboard Society, businesses and corporations, Community Groups and volunteers to provide an active quality park for the citizens and guests of Campbell River.  Projects include elimination of the drainage problems, rebuilding existing ball fields, construction of new ball fields, lights for the major field, construction of a skateboard park, development of loggers sports grounds, development of nature trails, creek rehabilitation and general beautification.   Present project is providing bleachers for the Logger Sports Grounds In 2009 the Festival added 2 new bleachers and in 2010 the City of Campbell River donated 16 used bleachers that the Salmon Festival is repairing with the help of donated materials from community businesses.
