2022 (55th annual) SalmonFest)

DETAILS TO FOLLOW AS PLANS ARE DEVELOPED

LOAN OUT OF EQUIPMENT (our giving back program)

Because of the generous support from our Community it is our policy to assist those who support the Salmon Festival plus Community Charities. In 2019 before COVID-19 we assisted 40 other community groups through the FREE use of our assets and volunteer help with their event set-up and tear down, The savings to the groups was $34,751.00 which helped their charitable cause and our Community. This also helped the businesses in our Community as the groups did not have to seek sponsorships to rent the items. For 2020 & 2021 we assisted a few groups who were providing COVID support. For our policy on use of Salmon Festival assets please go to our Application Page

FUNDING SOURCES

WITHOUT THESE THE FESTIVAL
WOULD NOT HAPPEN

The most important source of funding is our Corporate, Business and Community sponsors

Please support our Sponsors.  If you are interested in being a sponsor of the Campbell River Salmon Festival or one of it’s events please check out our sponsorship opportunity page. 2018 sponsorship presentation ( to come )
