Clayoquot Salmon Festival Partners with Salmon Nation for 2020 Festival of What Works

Salmon play an integral role in coastal livelihoods, cultures, and ecosystems on the west coast. And they lead incredible lives, starting in freshwater then migrating to the ocean. Celebrating the backbone of the west coast is what inspires Friends of Clayoquot Sound to organize the annual Clayoquot Salmon Festival based out of Tofino. But as COVID remains a major issue for in-person events, Friends of Clayoquot Sound took the 2020 Clayoquot Salmon Festival online teaming up with Salmon Nation’s Festival of What Works as part of a week of over 40 online events to celebrate salmon and what is working to protect the greater salmon bioregion.

The Clayoquot Salmon Festival X Festival of What Works collaboration streamed live from Sunday, November 15 – Sunday, November, 22, with each day of the Festival having a different theme. By taking Clayoquot Salmon Festival online, we aim to provide a broader opportunity to reflect upon and build an active appreciation for the irreplaceable value of salmon in Clayoquot Sound and across the salmon bioregion. Thanks to everyone who sponsored, contributed, and participated!
