Oroville Salmon Festival
Each year, the Oroville Salmon Festival celebrates the return of salmon to the Feather River.
The free event brings thousands of visitors to Oroville for environmental and cultural education, and includes DWR-led tours of the Feather River Fish Hatchery.
The festival runs along the river between historic Downtown Oroville and the Fish Hatchery, and features a downtown street fair with vendor booths, music and dance, food and beverage tents, salmon dish tastings, and kids’ games and activities.
The Oroville Salmon Festival is organized through a partnership between many organizations in the community, and DWR is a major supporter. For more information and a schedule of events, visit the Oroville Chamber’s website.
