It’s a “Wild Thing” weekend as we celebrate the annual return of our Kings, Reds and Silvers to the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery. The hatchery, which is the center of Festival attractions, is filled with displays and activities. Pick up your “Gill”–iver’s Travels passport and navigate to the different booths to learn about salmon, their migration, the environment, and water quality. Show your completed passport to the Dept. of Fish & Wildlife for a special fishy reward. The Friends of Issaquah Salmon Hatchery docents will be happy to answer all of your questions about the salmon lifecycle. They can even tell you about the salmon 5-6 million years ago that had fangs, weighed 500 lbs. and were 10 feet long. They were a true “Wild Thing.” Entertainment is everywhere. The Hatchery stage “Where Salmon Swing and Bluegrass

There’s a wonderful world of “Wild” activities throughout the Festival. The Parade starts at 10 am Saturday with marching bands and floats. There are over 300 arts and crafts booths, the Foods of the World can satisfy any appetite and the Field of Fun is full of hands on projects, rides, games, music and magic. Stop by to create your very own “Wild Thing” sock puppet. Salmon Days continues to be a cleaner and greener festival. Spoons, plates, cups and straws are made from cornstarch and are fully compostable. Spot our fearless team of Refuse Rangers, in neon green shirts throughout the festival to happily help you dispose of your food containers. Be sure to give them a high five!

The Bike Corral is conveniently located at the Hatchery on W. Sunset Way. To get there, take Newport Way to W. Sunset Way and enter the Hatchery through the first entrance.

Did you know? One of the greenest residential developments in our country is located right here in Issaquah! Join us during Salmon Days for a free tour of zHome, the first multifamily, zeroenergy, carbon-neutral community in the United States.

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 by the Bike Corral.

Shuttle Service

Look for our booth at the Issaquah Highlands Park and Ride shuttle stop. We can then direct you to the homes, which are located just steps away! The 10 townhomes achieve an impressive amount of ultra-green benchmarks, including: True zero-net energy

Our ever-popular Salmon Days shuttle service Ohfishally Spawnsored by Swedish/Issaquah will whisk you to the Festival grounds. Use the FREE parking at the Issaquah Park and Ride Transit Center, or the Issaquah Highlands Park and Ride or use the Costco corporate parking lot, just south of Pickering Barn. The shuttle will convey you off to the Festival in earth-friendly biodiesel buses and drop you off at one of two locations for the Festival. Parking is free, the cost to ride the shuttle is $2 per person round trip and free for children 12 and under. The Issaquah Highlands Park and Ride shuttle will drop off and pick up attendees on the corner of E. Sunset Way and Second Avenue SE. The Issaquah Highlands Park and Ride is located between NE High Street and NE Park Drive. To get there, take exit 18 off Interstate 90 and head north towards the Highlands and the new zHome. For the shuttle operating from the Costco corporate parking lot, from Interstate 90 take exit 15 and go north on E. Lake Sammamish Parkway. Turn on 11th Ave, take a left at the 4-way stop and continue to the lot on the left. The Costco corporate parking lot is near the store and the shuttle is located on 10th Avenue NW. The Issaquah Park and Ride Transit Center 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.

High indoor air quality through ventilation and low-toxicity materials Deep green building materials 90 percent of construction waste is recycled/reused Site stormwater mimics natural, forested state A significant portion of our environmental footprint comes from the construction and operation of buildings. Spearheaded by the City of Issaquah, zHome demonstrates how to make a home’s impacts as close to zero as possible. During the tour, you’ll see a variety of cutting-edge technologies firsthand, such as: Ground source heat pumps, which are three times more efficient than the best furnaces Building exteriors with twice the insulation of a typical home Solar panels 1700-gallon rainwater cisterns, which are used for toilet flushing and washing clothes Free public tours of zHome will run from 10 am-5 pm Saturdays and 11 am-5 pm Sundays from Sept. 17-Oct. 30. For more information, go to www.z-home.org.

Both the Costco corporate parking lot and the Issaquah Park and Ride shuttle drop attendees off near the corner of Front Street N. and NE 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 on approximately 10-15 minute intervals, beginning at 9 am and ending at 7 pm both days. Please note

Parking If you choose to drive into town, there are a number of Issaquah non-profits and 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 pink “fish” signs as these indicate Ohfishally sanctioned parking lots, all the proceeds go to Issaquah charities, nonprofits or service groups.

Sunset Way and on the west end of the Field of Fun located at Veterans’ Memorial Park. Have a question on the move? Keep an eye out for our roving information experts! Wearing orange vests with a large question mark on the back, these experts will be able to point you in the right direction if you are not near an Information Booth. Many of our helpful Information Booths’ volunteers donate their time and Issaquah expertise year-round at the Visitor Information Center. Our wonderful volunteers have a wealth of knowledge not only about the Festival, but also about the community at large as well. Be sure to pick up your Ohfishal Schedule of Events which contains detailed information including all FREE activities, each artist’s booth number, a map of the Festival,

entertainment information and special events. This easy guide will help you plan your day to get the most out of your Salmon Days experience! Remember to visit our website to download a map to bring with you!

Please leave your dogs at home Salmon Days is a great place for fish, friends, family and kids. Thank you for leaving your pets at home! We love fur, fins and feathers, but the bustling atmosphere, kids, and environment is not petfriendly or fun for them.

Wild Things! Salmon Days is a kaleidoscope of events and people coming together to celebrate the return of salmon to our streams. This year’s theme is “Wild Things”, celebrating 42 years of fun and excitement. Salmon Days began 42 years ago as a wondrous celebration of nature – specifically, the returning salmon. The backdrop for this momentous occasion is Issaquah itself, wreathed in vibrant fall colors and shining like a jewel. The beauty of salmon and city come together to create a unique and magical event. Strategic partnerships help us to limit carbon emissions, ensuring that Salmon Days 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. The Issaquah Salmon Days Festival has received numerous awards over the last 20 years for its environmental, family-friendly and marketing programs, including the prestigious International Festival & Events Association’s (IFEA) Pinnacle Awards, the Washington Festival & Events Association’s (WFEA) Summit Awards and the Washington State Recycler’s Association’s (WSRA) Best Event for 2010 for our greening efforts. Local schools eagerly await the return of the salmon each year, as their lifecycle is built into classroom curriculum, and field trips to the stream and hatchery are plentiful. With educational opportunities also at Salmon Days, students are seen prompting their parents with the correct answers. A highlight for many of these young students is the quest to find their salmon, a brightly colored and painted art project. Displayed around the festival, these creative works of art show case the talent of our festivals youngest participants.

Friday, September 23, 2011

It is the extraordinary recipe of image, theme, and effort, which blends together to create Salmon Days magic. 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 embodies the heart and soul of our community. The Festival celebrates and embraces one of nature’s most amazing creatures, the salmon. In no other place is their journey more fully embraced than in the perfect union of a fun festival. Providing free entertainment and activities for all ages, our Festival remains committed to our attendees. Knowing that service organizations are the lifeblood of the community, Salmon Days is proud to embrace and raise awareness for such worthy causes. More than just a Festival, we are a celebration of nature; a friend to local business and commerce; a coming together of young and old alike to create memories that last a lifetime.

Planning and promoting this year’s Festival is a magical, year-long journey. Beginning with this year’s Wild Things theme, it has grown and developed as the fishy characters have taken on a life of their own. We have so much fun in creating a magnificent two-day extravaganza to celebrate the return of the salmon to the Issaquah waterways.

ISSAQUAH SALMON DAYS

Oh, Baby it’s those Wild Things!

The Issaquah Salmon Days Festival is the major fundraiser for local non-profits and service groups to recruit volunteers, raise funds and create awareness for their organizations. As well as being the major fundraiser for the Greater Issaquah Chamber of Commerce, more than 70 groups that directly benefit Issaquah residents are represented at the Festival. Here is a small sampling of the organizations you will find at this year’s Festival.

Kiwanis Salmon BBQ

For 42 years, the “world famous” Kiwanis Salmon BBQ has enticed festival goers with the wafting smells of fresh fish grilling on an open flame. Just as the Festival has grown, so has the amount of mouth-watering salmon served - now totaling more than two tons a year! Located at Gibson Park on Newport Way, the feast is just a short walk from the hatchery and close to the Hatchery Stage playing Folk, Bluegrass and Americana. The first fillets come off the grill around 11:30 a.m. on both Saturday and Sunday. In addition to the fabulous meal you’ll find covered seating and a tot-lot where the children can play.

Kiwanis BBQ Beef and Pulled Pork Sandwiches

If you are craving something a little meatier, visit the Issaquah Valley Kiwanis Club barbecue on Front Street in the parking lot next to Mills Music. Food fanatics will find scrumptious BBQ \ sandwiches for only $8. The proceeds from both BBQ’s benefit a variety of projects and programs in the community.

From straws to plates and everything in between, Salmon Days will again be one of the festivals in the nation which requires vendors to use only compostable products. Made from corn, sugar cane, bamboo, and wheat byproducts, which are all fully compostable, these goods allow Salmon Days to drastically reduce waste destined for landfill. This year we expect to divert from the landfill at least 50% of the total waste generated at the festival. Friendly volunteers and events professionals from CleanScapes will happily help you to dispose of your food containers at our recycle stations. So grab a tasty treat, enjoy some delicious food, and come help us “re-spawn-sibly” celebrate the return of the salmon to our local hatchery.

Wild Things at the Hatchery “Gill”-iver’s Travels Back by popular demand is the “Gill”-iver’s Travels passport game at the downtown hatchery. Join many of the earthfriendly non-profits for this fishy activity 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 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 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 (F.I.S.H.), King County and the State Department of Natural Resources. “Gill”-iver’s Travels and other hatchery activities are Ohfishally Spawnsored by Puget Sound Energy.

Wild and Wonderful! Our Ohfishal Festival Committee and volunteers

Part of the magic of Salmon Days is our wonderful network of volunteers. In fact, until the early 80’s 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 amazing volunteers to help produce the event. The Salmon Days Festival Committee is the core group of volunteers who head up various committees. This group of 21 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 the preparation and production. This year’s committee includes the following:

Will Parkinson Chamber Board Liaison Don Turner Eastside Fire and Rescue David Harris Entertainment Eileen Barber Festival Committee Chair Camie Callahan/Sharianne Coad Field of Fun Pam Stevens Geoteaming Joyce Adams Grande Parade

Rob Gilde Hatchery Zone Max Maxwell Headquarters Mike Winkler Information Booths Sgt. Chris Wilson Police Liaison David Bahm Refuse Rangers Wendy DuBois/Pam Stevens Retail Joyce Adams Salmbassadors Greg & Luke Spranger Tech Team Jack Hodges/Mike DeLile Vehicle Integration Placement Ileah Hoeke Volunteers

This year’s annual Salmon Days Volunteer Sign Up Party was held September 7th at Pickering Barn and catered by our family-friendly partners Timber Ridge at Talus. Volunteers are at the heart of the Festival and their contribution is what makes our Festival a huge success year after year. All the volunteers at Salmon Days are Ohfishally Spawnsored by BECU. Salmon Days has two highly specialized volunteer teams, the Refuse Rangers and the Tech Team. The remarkable Refuse Rangers, our own Eco-Maniacs, are now in their eighteenth year. These dedicated guys and “gills” take care of the wild things that go squish and help to keep our reputation of being one of the cleanest festivals in the Northwest. The Festival is an exciting bustle of booths, activities, signs, banners, murals and more. Wielding duct tape and flashing zip ties, our Tech Team is the amazing group of volunteers who gets the festival set up and ready to go. With their motto of “Fish Happens” we know we can count on them to keep the festival going.

Salmon Days is honored to partner with more than 500 members of the They all come together to make Salmon community each year that come to lend Days one of the best–loved and cleanest a hand. These trusty people are often Festivals around! referred to as ‘Ohfishals’ and this year you’ll find them hustling around Salmon Days in wild and colorful t-shirts helping with just about everything!
