Return of the Salmon: Wenatchee River Salmon Festival in Leavenworth Professional Review and Guide

"Honor salmon as they begin making their way from the sea, persistently focused on the journey to spawn at their freshwater birthing place. Three popular festivals make it fun to celebrate this spunky fish.

The Wenatchee River Salmon Festival in Leavenworth features a variety of activities, all held on the grounds of the Leavenworth National Fish Hatchery, just a five-minute drive from downtown Leavenworth. Hundreds of thousands of chinook salmon are raised here and released into the Wenatchee River, where they can be seen making their nests in the gravel. Chinook are the largest of the Pacific salmon; mature chinook are called king salmon."
