Donkey Creek Chum Festival

Every year, the greater Gig Harbor community celebrates the return of salmon to our local waters. The Chum Festival serves to remind us that the quality of our water, and the habitat it supports, connects us all. Join the City of Gig Harbor as they recognize new ways to improve and protect our waterways.  The goal is to bring people together to promote sustainability, sound environmental stewardship, preservation of our maritime history and culture, responsible recreation, habitat preservation, and shoreline restoration -- one salmon at a time.

2017's 11th annual event will be Saturday, November 18 at Donkey Creek at the Harbor History Museum and Austin Estuary Park. If you would like to join the group or reserve a booth, email Lindsey Johnson, Executive Director Harbor Wild Watch
