Plans for the 2021 Event

Pink-Festival-FishThe next Pink Salmon Festival will be scheduled for July 2021. Find out about child registration through schools, summer programs, recreation centres and clubs. You can also send an email through our “drop us a line” link.

On the day of the festival, volunteer skippers take over 100 kids fishing for Pink Salmon. Vessels leave from Pedder Bay Marina, Jock’s Dock, Sooke Harbour Marina, and Cheanuh Marina for three hours of saltwater fishing and ocean exploring. Afterwards, kids join their families on land for a barbeque at Pedder Bay Resort & Marina to celebrate the day and their catch!

Our society provides kids with fishing licenses, salmon stamps, and personal flotation devices (PFDs). Sponsors provide backpacks, t-shirts and trout gear so hopefully kids will enjoy fishing on their own well after the event!

To ensure safety on the water, representatives of the Canadian Coast Guard Auxiliary and Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada provide additional support during the event.
