Still fresh, fun and free after 40 years of festivals Welcome to the Issaquah Salmon Days Festival as we celebrate 40 years of great returns. We’re 40 years old and Still Fresh, Still Fun and Still Free. This year’s festival promises to be the best ever, with many longtime favorite activities returning. The Grande Parade starts the festivities Saturday morning with colorful floats, marching bands and comical clowns.

Eileen Barber

Fishy fact: J.P. Patches and Gertrude led our parade 40 years ago in 1970.

Established in 1936, the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery and grounds are the place to view many environmental exhibits and, most importantly, the wild salmon as they journey home from the sea. While at the hatchery, continue your journey across the bridge to the world famous Kiwanis Salmon BBQ and the new Hatchery Stage, dedicated to bluegrass. Fishy fact: The Kiwanis have been serving barbecued salmon for all of our 40 years. This year, there are many new enjoyable activities to experience. You can pet a friendly alpaca and watch DockDogs — canines of all sizes and shapes compete for the longest and highest water jump, as well as the fastest retrieve; both are located on the Field of Fun. Get your souvenir photo taken with Issaquah’s largest salmon, Sammy the Salmon Days mascot, and then wander over to play some games in the Microsoft gaming lounge and sign up to participate in research and playtest studies at a later date. All of this fun is thanks to the support of more than 70 ohfishal spawnsors, led by our co-title Spawnsors — the Snoqualmie Casino and Overlake Hospital Medical Center. I’d like to tip my hat to the more than 500 volunteers for their wild enthusiasm and countless hours that bring this show to our community. Fishy Fact: Pam Stevens has been volunteering for 40 years and is our longest serving volunteer. It takes a whole village — the citizens, businesses, the city of Issaquah and an amazing staff to make this an award-winning festival. Thank you! Welcome to the Issaquah Salmon Days Festival. Forty years of Great Returns. We are Still Fresh. Still Fun. Still Free. Eileen Barber Festival Chairwoman



As always, with parking and gas at a premium, we have many alternatives for saving time and money. Handicapped parking There is convenient parking located in the Staples parking lot. From Interstate 90, take exit 17, the Front Street exit, and head south. At the intersection of Gilman Boulevard, turn left, and the Staples parking lot will be just ahead on the right. The north festival entrance is just two blocks from this lot. Go green — ride your bike! Once again this year, we offer our free bike corral, ohfishally spawnsored by REI and Banner Bank, for those who want to pedal their way to the fishy fun. The Bike Corral is conveniently located at the hatchery on West Sunset Way. To get there, take Newport Way to West Sunset Way and enter the hatchery through the first entrance. You can leave your bike and helmet in the safety of the corral while you wander the festival. REI, our community bike commute specialists, will provide free bike inspections at their booth, located adjacent to the Bike Corral.

Getting around town Shuttle service Our ever-popular shuttle service, ohfishally spawnsored by US Bank, will also be ready to transport you easily to the festival. Choose from any of the three shuttle locations, where you’ll find free parking at the new Issaquah Park & Ride, the Issaquah Highlands Park & Ride or use the Costco corporate parking lot, just south of Pickering Barn. The shuttle will whisk you off to the festival in the earth-friendly biodiesel buses, and drop you off at one of two convenient locations. The cost is $2 per person

round trip and free for children 12 and under. The Issaquah Highlands Park & Ride shuttle will drop attendees off on the corner of East Sunset Way and Second Avenue Southeast. The park & ride facility is located between Northeast High Street and Northeast Park Drive. To get there, take exit 18 off Interstate 90 and head north toward the highlands. For the shuttle operating from the Costco corporate parking lot, from Interstate 90, take exit 15 and go north on to East Lake Sammamish Parkway. Turn right on 11th Avenue, take a left onto Lake Drive at the four-way stop and follow signs to the lot located on the left. The Costco corporate shuttle parking lot is past the store, just south of Pickering Barn on 10th Avenue Northwest. The new Issaquah Park & Ride is located on the corner of state Route 900 and Newport Way. Coming from Interstate 90, take exit 15 and go south to the third set of lights. Both the Costco corporate parking lot and the Issaquah Park & Ride shuttle drop attendees off near the corner of Front Street North and Northwest Dogwood Street. Be sure to go back to the shuttle stop where you were dropped off to ensure that you are taken back to the correct parking lot. Parking is free at all three lots. All shuttle buses run at approximately 10-minute intervals, beginning at 9 a.m. and ending at 7 p.m. both days. Please note that some routes have to be altered at certain times to accommodate the Grande Parade and the Rotary Run. Attendees are required to pay only on the return trip. The buses are equipped to be handicapped accessible. Parking If you choose to drive into town, there are a number of Issaquah service organizations who operate pay parking lots as fundraisers. These parking lots are located around the perimeter of the festival and offer convenient parking at affordable prices. Look for the bright yellow “fish” signs, as these indicate ohfishally sanctioned parking lots. All of the proceeds go to Issaquah charities, nonprofit organizations or service groups.


Information booths Want to know what is going on? Then be sure to stop by one of the three information booths on the festival grounds. Ohfishally spawnsored by Coldwell Banker Bain, the information booths are conveniently located at the corner of Front Street North and Northwest Dogwood Street, Front Street South and East Sunset Way and on the west end of the Field of Fun in Memorial Park. We also have roving information experts. You’ll easily be able to identify them, because they wear orange vests with a huge question mark on them. If you’re not near an information booth and you see them walking around Salmon Days, ask them — they will be able to point you in the right direction! Many of our helpful information booths’ volunteers donate their time and Issaquah expertise year-round at the Visitor Information Center. They have a wealth of knowledge not only about the festival, but about the community as well. At the information booth, you can pick up your ohfishal schedule of events, which includes detailed information including all of the free activities, each artist and his or her booth number, a map of the entire festival, entertainment information and spe-

2009 THEME

This year’s theme is Celebrating 40 Years of Great Returns. Salmon Days is a kaleidoscope of events and people and that is reflected in the colorful splash created by the salmon. In honor of celebrating our ruby anniversary, we chose red for our three ohfishal volunteer shirts. Salmon Days began 40 years ago as a wondrous celebration of nature — specifically, the returning salmon. Each year, forces come together in a beautiful rainbow of energy that shines bright on Issaquah, with vibrant fall colors of rust, gold and green in Issaquah’s hills and valley, and the intensity of red salmon thrashing to complete their life’s destiny in the stream running through the heart of our city. Strategic partnerships help the carbon footprint of the event to be reduced and the impact of the “grand party” that Salmon Days is minimally affects the environment. We focus on that impact — implementing the reduce, reuse, recycle philosophy; using biodiesel fuel in shuttle buses and generators; offering a free Bike Corral; and working with our citizenry to sort their waste into compostable and recyclable refuse, which in turn lessens the debris being taken to the landfill from the event.

Celebrating 40 Years of Great Returns Our local schools eagerly await the return of the salmon each year, as their lifecycle is built into classroom curriculum; field trips to the stream and hatchery are plentiful. With educational opportunities at Salmon Days, like “Gill”-ivers Travels on the hatchery grounds, students are prompting their parents with the correct answers. With such an abundance of children having a close personal relationship to the salmon, the future looks very bright. Those same children paint and color salmon to be used as decorations at


Salmon Days; part of the children’s fun in attending the event is the quest to find their salmon somewhere on the grounds. It is the intention and integration of image and theme, coupled with the extraordinary efforts of thousands of people who come together, creating the magic that is Salmon Days. Named as a treasure by our citizens, held as an icon of the community by city leaders, the Issaquah Salmon Days Festival is the framework that bonds diverse people, with assorted missions and interests, together in an authentic, heartfelt celebration. Salmon Days is more than just a festival — it embodies the heart and soul of our community. In no other place is the circle of life and grace more fully embraced than in the perfect union of a fun festival that provides amazing free entertainment to its attendees. It embraces and raises awareness for the service organizations that are the lifeblood of the community; actively promotes care of the habitat of the miracle of nature that occurs here; allows commerce to thrive and support its customers, who in turn support them; brings joy into the lives of young and old alike; and creates memories and traditions that last a lifetime and beyond.

COMPOSTING A leaner, cleaner and greener festival Celebrating its 40th year, Salmon Days remains as “fresh, fun and free” as the day J.P. Patches made his cameo appearance before a “crowd” of 15,000 at the first Salmon Festival in 1970. But, like all good things, fun has a way of catching up with our “waste-lines.” Thus, the Issaquah Salmon Days Festivals Office is excited to announce this year’s festival food services will use only compostable service ware and to-go containers. Vendors will


also be able to purchase these products at pricing comparable to polystyrene and less “green” products directly from the festival. Everything from your spoons, plates and cups to the straw in your drink are made from corn, sugar cane, bamboo and wheat byproducts, which makes them all fully compostable. Join the fun, friendly folks at the recycle stations who will happily help you dispose of your food containers. Thanks to the cooperative efforts of the Salmon Days Office, our city Resource Conservation Office, Cedar Grove Composting and Food Services of America, the 2009 Issaquah Salmon Days Festival will be a totally compostable event. This year, we’ll all be celebrating the Salmon Days “big 40” more re-spawnsibly than ever. Wander over to Foods of the World and see the miracle of decomposition in the Cube of Food.


Join us on the Field of Fun at 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 3, to see the Festival Spectacle, featuring hundreds of local children as part of the special performance created specifically for the Issaquah Salmon Days Festival. We are delighted to have returning artist-in-residence Jeroen Mourik bringing his Festival Spectacle to life again this year for the 2009 festivities. The performance will be a fabulous addition to our 40th Anniversary! Mourik, a European now living in the Canary Islands, works with schools and children around the world. This summer included a very special Festival Spectacle at the Mbirizi Primary School in Masaka, Uganda. The Festival Spectacle was first performed at the 2005 Salmon Days event and was such a huge success that we brought it back again in 2006 and 2008. Each visit integrated school children, dance schools and others from the community with dance, movement and costumes highlighting the current year’s theme. Themes were “Born to be Wild,” featuring nature and the wildlife in our community, and “What a Wonderful Whirl,”

A Festival Spectacle to celebrate 40th anniversary addressing recycling and our environment. This year’s performance is ohfishally spawnsored by Cascade Bank and the Issaquah Arts Commission, allowing Mourik to return and expand on his fun, educational concept. The 2009 performance will be developed around the theme of celebration! “I am happy to be back in Washington,” said Mourik, who originates from The Netherlands. “I am very pleased and


excited to rekindle the community connections I made in previous years as the artist-in-residence.” We are looking forward to offering this wonderful opportunity to our community, as participants and spectators. The Festival Spectacle will be created at Newcastle Elementary School and then will be performed at 2 p.m. at Memorial Park, aka the Field of Fun, Saturday, Oct. 3. “Having Jeroen as an artist-in-residence enhances our commitment to including cultural diversity as a priority for Salmon Days. It adds an educational, international artistic element,” said Robin Kelley, director of festivals for the Issaquah Chamber of Commerce. “We continue to seek out activities that are inclusive and make the festival meaningful to the broadest audience. “We have always encouraged participation by families and are delighted that schools have allowed volunteering at the festival to count as credits,” she added. “This involvement ensures a part for the youngest in our community. For example, in Issaquah, our third-graders are learning about the life cycle of the salmon.”



Of course, after eating all this great food you’ll need a cool beverage to wash it down. Grab an ice-cold Coca-Cola or Talking Rain water, available at most food booths. Did someone say salmon? Get your fill of fresh salmon at Scotty’s Northwest, serving blackened salmon over a Caesar salad or Ballard Brothers blackened Cajun salmon burgers in the Foods of the World. Or, stop by the Kiwanis Salmon BBQ in Gibson Park, across from the salmon hatchery off Newport Way. Remember to save time, and room, for your favorite festival treats! For your dining pleasure and convenience, we now have concessions on the street and on the Field of Fun. Check out the listing below to find your favorites. Did you know that all of the festival cuisine is being served on compostable service ware this year? So, when you are done, look for the “Compostables” people and toss it all away. Easy!

From the beginning, at the very heart of Salmon Days were the volunteers. In fact, until the early ’80s, the event was entirely run by volunteers, at which point a full-time festival director was brought on board as staff. Salmon Days still depends on its wonderful volunteers to help produce the event. The Salmon Days Festival Committee is the core group of volunteers who head up the various committees. This group of 17 people chair and manage various parts of the festival. They meet monthly beginning in June and continue through Salmon Days assisting the Festivals Office with preparation and production. This year’s committee includes the following: Kristi Tripple Chamber board liaison Capt. Steve Westlake Eastside Fire & Rescue David Harris/Bruce Koenigsburg Entertainment Steve Campbell Emergency management Eileen Barber Festival Committee chairwoman Camie Callahan Field of Fun/Salmon Cycle Family Bike Ride Joyce Adams Grande Parade Pam Stevens Geoteaming Max Maxwell Headquarters Robert & Marilyn Ittes Information booths Sgt. Chris Wilson Police liaison

This year’s annual Salmon Days Volunteer Sign Up Party was held Sept. 15 at Pickering Barn and catered by our fun, family-friendly partners Timber Ridge at Talus. Our volunteers are at the heart of the festival and their contribution is what makes us a huge success year after year. The volunteers at Salmon Days are ohfishally spawnsored by Overlake Hospital Medical Center of Issaquah. Salmon Days has two highly specialized volunteer teams, the Refuse Rangers and the Tech Team. The irresistible Refuse Rangers, now in their 16th year, are under the guidance of Garbage Czar Alex Bahm with David Bahm as trash master emeritus. These guys and “gills” take care of the things that go squish and have an inimitable, magical aroma. The Refuse Rangers are ohfishally spawnsored by Costco Wholesale. The Tech Team gets the festival set up and ready to go, and keep it going. Tech Team dynamos, wielding duct tape and flashing zip ties, low-tech all the way, are our volunteer production crew. Their motto is “Fish Happens!” We can count on them. Salmon Days would not be the same without them. The Tech Team is ohfishally spawnsored by Microsoft.


‘Gill’-iver’s Travels The “Gill”-iver’s Travels passport game at the downtown hatchery is an annual favorite. Join many of the earthfriendly nonprofit organizations for this excursion that lets both children and adults assume the role of a migrating salmon. Start by picking up your passport at the entrance of the hatchery and then travel to different booths and answer questions about salmon, their environment and water quality. When you have completed the journey, show your stamped passport at the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife station, to receive a special fishy treat! “Gill”-iver’s Travels is made possible by the state Department of Fish and Wildlife, Friends of the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery, King County and the state De-

Hatchery is a flurry of fish partment of Natural Resources. “Gill”iver’s Travels and other hatchery activities are ohfishally spawnsored by Puget Sound Energy. More activities The hatchery is also the place for environmental nonprofit and service organizations.

Manager Andrea Larsen and Retail Manager Sylvia Hodges can’t wait for you to find out just what a fun, fresh, fantastic, fabulous, fishy festival frolic we have created in celebration of our 40th annual Is-


saquah Salmon Days Festival! Planning and promoting the festival is a yearlong endeavor. Beginning with the theme, it grows and develops into a magnificent two-day extravaganza that celebrates the return of the salmon to Issaquah waterways. Our fishy festival is put together by a staff of four — two full-time and two parttime employees — who have a lot of fun while putting in a lot of hard work, strange hours and using their creativity to concoct the best possible celebration for you. Along with the staff, more than 500 volunteers work to produce Salmon Days, many who regularly join us in the office to count and fold shirts, prepare banners, build and stock shelves, copy, collate, print, glue, color, and generally play with us yearround. Others come out to help with their favorite job during Salmon Days. Put this together with the more than 70 Ohfishal Spawnsors, over 60 nonprofit organizations, 40 food purveyors, 270 arts and crafts artists and 150,000 of the community’s closest friends and family and you have a festival!

Junior artist Atesha Banki (right) hand delivers her art piece to Andrea Larsen, Salmon Days vendor manager, at the festivals office. This year, the limited-edition print is presented in a different fashion — on Tshirts. The call to artists went out in April and May and many wonderful art pieces from submitted from which to select. It was a difficult decision to choose from so many exquisite works of art, but two were selected to represent Salmon Days. Junior artist Atesha Banki, hand-delivered her piece to the festivals offices. This particular piece was chosen for its vibrancy and lively colors — so indicative of the salmon and the landscape at this time of year. It is being recreated on a white youth-sized T-shirt. The second selection features Mary Gibbs’ “School of Salmon” print. Her vivid watercolor of a cluster of fiery-red spawning salmon has been beautifully reproduced on a navy long-sleeved T-shirt. The city is honored to have Chefchaouen, Morocco, as a sister city.

wearables and the Moroccan connection Building on that cultural exchange and nurturing our relationship, Issaquah will host two renowned artists from Morocco exhibiting their art at Salmon Days. Mostafa Dennouch, of Marrakech, is one of the country’s premier wood artists who creates lasting masterpieces of geo-

metric patterns, sometimes encrusted or inlaid with different pieces of wood or with metal. The second visiting artist is a metal crafter, Driss Essakhi, from Fes. His work consists of a diverse range of metal art pieces — such as jewelry, utensils, silverware, brassware, statues and wrought iron — ornately decorated with geometric patterns and inlays. Both artists have been invited to participate in a number of prestigious international art fairs throughout Europe in destinations such as Oman, France, Poland, Portugal, Beirut and Lisbon. Explore the cultural techniques and exotic beauty of the art they will display and produce from their location at the corner of Sunset Way and Rainier Boulevard.

Growing up on Vashon Island, Steve always was involved in the creative process. He began creating simple copper garden sprinklers, which his customers loved. No two sprinklers are identical.

Saturday afternoon will include a special performance by the duo of Darol Anger and Scott Law. Noted fiddler and composer Darol Anger is a founding member of the David Grisman Quintet, as well as Turtle Island String Quartet, Montreux, Republic Of Strings and is a featured soloist on dozens of recordings and motion picture soundtracks. “It would be hard to overstate Darol Anger’s prominence and influence on the bluegrass music scene over the last three decades,” according to Rob Gilde, manager of the Hatchery Stage and a bluegrass music aficionado. Salmon Days is honored and privileged to have him be part of the bluegrass music program.

Celebrating 40 years of great returns — they keep coming back! ❖ In 1970, the Greater Issaquah Chamber of Commerce presented the first Issaquah Salmon Days Festival. ❖ The event grew out of the desire to replace the once popular Labor Day celebration, as well as a need to celebrate one of Issaquah’s greatest treasures — the annual return of the salmon. ❖ In the beginning, festival attractions included the Kiwanis Salmon BBQ, hatchery tours, an art show, children's parade led by J.P. Patches, Little League football games at Memorial Field, fire crew competitions and more. ❖ In 1980, the Salmon Days Festival and parade underwent two major changes that have been credited with altering the course of the festival: Salmon Days became a Seafair-sanctioned event and a fes-

Looking back at 40 years of memories tival float was created and utilized in marketing. ❖ To aid in the growth process, merchandise was introduced, the first paid festival director was hired and large ohfishal spawnsors came on board in the 1980s.


❖ In 1990, the festival introduced the Salmon Days limited-edition print, a signed-and-numbered run of 450 prints featuring original artwork. The festival retired the collection at the end of 2003 and almost all of the past prints have sold out. ❖ After 40 years, Salmon Days still has the goal of providing a community celebration focused on our returning salmon. The Kiwanis are still in town barbecuing salmon — just the amount has increased (over a ton each year); the Grande Parade features nearly 100 entries annually; Memorial Park, renamed the Field of Fun during the festival, hosts free activities for families to enjoy; sporting events have replaced the once-popular fire crew competitions; and finally, what began as an art show has transformed into a marketplace, where more than 270 imaginative artists sell their handcrafted pieces to attendees in excess of 150,000.

Harry Dingwall (left) and Patrick Rogers prepare salmon fillets for cooking over the wood pit at the Issaquah Kiwanis Club’s famous salmon barbecue. The Issaquah Salmon Days Festival is not only the major fundraiser for the Issaquah Chamber of Commerce, a not-forprofit organization, but also provides opportunities for other local nonprofit and service groups to raise funds and awareness for their organizations. More than 60 groups who are based in, or directly benefit Issaquah residents, are represented at the festival. A small sampling of the organizations you will find at this year’s festival are listed.

Fabulous, fishy, friendly, fundraising

Kiwanis Salmon BBQ For 40 years, the “world famous” Kiwanis Salmon BBQ has enticed festivalgoers with the wafting smells of fresh fish grilling over an open flame. Just as the festival has grown, so has the amount of mouth-watering salmon served — now totaling more than one ton each year! Located at Gibson Park on Newport Way, the feast is just a short walk behind the hatchery — across the street from the bluegrass music on the new Hatchery Stage. The

first fillets come off the grill at about 11:30 a.m. Saturday and Sunday. In addition to the fabulous meal for only $12, you’ll find covered seating; a tot lot, where children can play; and you can enjoy the accompanying tunes.

Kiwanis BBQ beef sandwiches The Issaquah Valley Kiwanis Club once again has its mouthwatering beef barbe-

cue on Front Street next to Mills Music and the Go Fish! Stage. Food fanatics will find tasty barbecued beef sandwiches for only $6. There is seating where you can delight to the performers onstage while you enjoy your meal. All proceeds benefit a variety of projects and programs in the community.

Issaquah History Museums The Issaquah History Museums and Restoration Shop will be open from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. during Salmon Days. The Gilman Town Hall Museum and Jail (165 S.E. Andrews St.) tells the story of Issaquah's early history. Our own Issaquah Train Depot, fully restored and listed in the National Register of Historic Places, is at the center of Salmon Days activities. Exhibits at this location feature Issaquah's railroad history; the depot is also the home of the Issaquah Valley trolley, currently undergoing restoration in the trolley barn north of the depot.

After you buy the calendar, an amazing deal at only $15, you can have it autographed by some of the firefighters featured in this year’s calendar.

FISH answers Bring your freaky, fun and fabulously fishy questions to the experts at the hatchery, located on West Sunset Way. Highly trained and knowledgeable volunteers, also known as FISH (Friends of the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery) docents, are there to answer all of your questions about salmon and the attractions at the hatchery. Docents are easily identified by the tall “Ask Me” signs. You can also stop by the FISH booth at the hatchery to have fun with the “Gill”-iver’s Travels passport game. Complete the game to earn your own special treat!

NONPROFITS Again this year, more than 60 nonprofit groups and service organizations will raise funds and awareness for their organizations. For many of these nonprofits, Salmon Days is one of their major fundraising activities for the year. We are tickled pink to host these organizations, the proceeds from which go directly back into the Issaquah and greater Eastside communities. We are delighted to be able to support so many good causes through our event and hope you will look for them and support them in many different ways. Thank you!
