Issaquah Salmon Days

The Issaquah Salmon Days is a two-day award-winning festival held in Issaquah, Washington, held from 10am to 8pm on both Saturday and Sunday of the first full weekend of October. It is initiated by a parade, celebrating the return of the salmon to their birth-waters, that embraces Issaquah's history, culture, and ethnic diversity. This free festival showcases over 270 arts and crafts artisans attracting many Northwest artists; these artisans feature wood, glass, jewelry, paintings, pottery, and metal artworks for sale. There are five stages of entertainment including cover bands, a kids' stage and a dedicated Bluegrass stage. Sporting events include 5K/10K runs (and a 1K run for kids), a Sporting Weekend which is held the weekend prior to the festival and includes geoteaming, a treasure hunt around Issaquah using GPS. Veterans' Memorial Park is transformed into the "Field of Fun" offering entertainment for children. The 2010 register revealed over 180,000 people attended the event.
