The 63rd annual Depoe Bay Salmon Bake will take place on Saturday, Sept. 21. Sponsored by the Depoe Bay Chamber of Commerce, this traditional community event will be held at the Depoe Bay City Park with salmon meals being served from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m., or until all salmon/tickets have been sold.
The salmon will be cooked in the traditional Native American style on stakes over an alder and fir wood-fueled fire. The meal includes approximately 8 ounces of wild-caught chinook salmon, coleslaw, bread, a beverage and dessert. Salmon meal tickets are available in advance (with a $2 discount per meal) for $23 at www.depoebaychamber.org or at the Depoe Bay Visitor Center. Subject to availability, meal tickets will also be sold at the gate for $25.
Admission to the park, as well as the entertainment is free. There will be courtesy shuttle bus service throughout Depoe Bay and into the park. Raffle tickets will be on sale (for $5 each) for a variety of prize packages. Also, Salmon Bake logo gear and souvenirs will be available for purchase before and after the event at the Depoe Bay Visitor Center and during the event at the chamber’s souvenir booth.
