Klamath Salmon Festival Is This Weekend

The Eureka Times-Standard has a preview for this weekend’s Klamath Salmon Festival, an event coordinated by the Yurok Tribe and celebrating its 57th year.  Here’s more on the event from the newspaper:

Every year, the Yurok Tribe puts on the annual celebration to bring the community together to celebrate the bounty of the Klamath River. Fresh-caught Klamath salmon will once again be served this year. The meal is $11 and is comprised of a salmon steak, water and three homemade side dishes, including a green salad, chili, potato salad, and a dinner roll.

This festival’s theme this year is “Skue’n ‘Owook, Can’t Wait for Tomorrow,” which embodies the optimism felt for the much-anticipated removal of the Klamath dams and the impending reintroduction of the California condor in Yurok Country.
