September 14 - 17, 2020

Beautiful Bristol Bay, Alaska is home to one of the largest wild salmon runs on Earth. For the last several years, we have been proud to bring a taste of the region to our nation’s capital as part of an in-person event. This year, the Bristol Bay Wild Salmon Celebration is a week-long virtual commemoration of the fish that are so vital to the region, as the foundation to its subsistence culture and an economy built on commercial fishing, sport fishing and tourism.
