Salmon Homecoming 2022 – Virtual School Days


Every September since 1992, the Salmon Homecoming Celebration has taken place on the Seattle Waterfront. This event commemorates the return of salmon to our local waters and introduces attendees to Coast Salish cultural activities. The in-person School Days have been postponed until next year, but we are excited to bring the School Days activities to a much larger audience by taking them online for Virtual School Days. Thank you for joining us in welcoming the salmon back to their home waters once again!
