243. Grand Haven Salmon Festival

September 13, 2011

I don’t know much about fishing, let alone a Salmon, except my wife has a amazing bourbon glazed salmon recipe that I think is yummy. But I do know and like festivals and Grand Haven has got one more before the summer…error fall get started. The Grand Haven Salmon Festival, is a three-day festival in downtown Grand Haven. The event was designed to mark the passing of summer, promote the area as a unique fall tourist destination and celebrate the fall harvest season and salmon migration. The festival theme is arts, education and entertainment and assures the residents and visitors alike a unique opportunity to learn about the region’s natural assets, while experiencing the cultural appeal of the area through music, art, entertainment, history and education.

The outdoor-waterfront festival features live jazz music; Michigan wine tasting pavilion featuring Michigan’s top wineries and grape stomping; gourmet salmon cook-off contest; fall harvest beer & entertainment pavilion; fine art fair on the waterfront; Big King Salmon fishing contest with weigh-in/awards ceremony, mouth-watering food and beverage treats at the Fresh Catch Fish Boil; Grand Haven historic displays through the Tri-Cities Museum;, hands-on children’s nature-themed arts & crafts activities; and educational, environment-focused exhibits, displays, workshops, nature walk —and more!
