RedFish Festival

Here they come again!
It’s time to celebrate the annual return of the Kokanee salmon at Kokanee Creek Nature Centre on Sunday, August 26, 2018.
Get ready for the seventh annual RedFish Festival – rain or shine, free by donation to the festival!
It wouldn’t be a festival without music, dance, bubbles, kids activities and good food. Local food vendors will be on hand all day for a meal or a treat.

We will have guided channel tours run hourly throughout the day so that campers and residents can learn more about the Kokanee Salmon:  the keystone species.  They return year after year to lay eggs and then die.  Their bodies fuel the lake and the surrounding ecosystems for the next year.  Come help us welcome them back and to say thanks to these amazing fish!

The festival enjoys wide support from its sponsors, BC Parks, Friends of West Kootenay Parks, Columbia Basin Trust, RDCK Area E and F, The Nelson Star, the West Kootenay EcoSociety and RAP Park Contractors.
Standby for a schedule for 2018.
