CELEBRATE SALMON THROUGH ART, FOOD, AND MUSIC
The Nooksack Salmon Enhancement Association (NSEA), in partnership with Boundary Bay Brewery, presents the 9th annual Salmon at the Bay event happening this summer June 18th – August 5th in downtown Bellingham. This fun, family-friendly fundraiser celebrates our community’s connection to salmon through art, food, and music. A photography display featuring the work that NSEA does at the grassroots level to restore streamside habitat for salmon will hang on the walls inside Boundary Bay throughout the event, which kicks off on Saturday June 18th, 2011 from 11:30am to 3pm with a delicious Salmon BBQ Lunch and will wrap up on Friday August 5th, 2011 with a gourmet Salmon BBQ Dinner served from 5pm to 8:30pm. For those 21 and over, legendary blues musician Nick Vigarino will follow the August 5th dinner, rocking the crowd from 9pm-12 midnight.
Come help NSEA welcome the summer season and start it off right with a salmon burger bbq lunch in the Boundary Bay Garden on June 18th. Tickets are $10 and you can enjoy music from the Celtic-style Warren Street Session as you feast. All proceeds from the event will benefit NSEA’s Whatcom County stream restoration program.
