A Traditional Community Event

This annual community event serves up delicious salmon cooked in the traditional Native American style on stakes over an alder and fir wood fire.  Check out the short video below to see how the salmon are cooked.

Each wild caught Chinook salmon takes about 45 minutes to bake, and will be served up with coleslaw, bread, a beverage and desert.

The event kicks off at 10:30 am with musician Brent Barry.  At 11 am the June Rushing Band will play folk music and oldies.  The Turquoise Pride Singers (Native American Dancers) will preform from 12 pm to 12:45 pm.  Michael Dane & Friends will play tropical island music from 1 pm – 1:45 pm, followed by the Turquoise Pride Singers at 2 pm.  At 3 pm Uncle Brady & the Wailing Bags Boys will play Rock and blues until 3:30 pm.  Tours of the Coast Guard station and training facilities will also be available from 11 am – 2 pm.

Salmon Bake gear and souvenirs will be available for purchase before and after the event at the Depoe Bay Visitor Center and during the event at the Chamber’s souvenir booth.  Don’t forget to buy a $5 raffle ticket to see if you can win a highly valued travel and activity prize.
