The prime industries of Northern Vancouver Island are Forestry and Fishing and our Festival is a tribute to them.
The “Logger Sports” event (our heritage sport) depicts the past and present logging practices through entertaining competitions between loggers and is presently one of the largest in Canada for prize money and number of events. This years show will offer 3 World Championship and 8 Canadian Championships, along with 45 other Men’s Novice, Intermediate & Open, Ladies Novice & Open plus Youth and Teen events, over 2 1/2 days with a prize package of $44,140. Along with our regular competitions is a 4 person, 4 event “Best In The Bush” relay which is for local company competitors only. This fun event determines which company can display the trophy and have the bragging rights for the year, as having the best Logging Sports employees. The competitors also receive cash prizes for their achievements. For Logging Sports details click on Logger Sports

In keeping with our name, Salmon Festival, we will have a Salmon Barbeque where festival goers can enjoy a delicious salmon lunch or supper. There will also be booths and displays with a marine theme. For the children Salmon Festival provides special areas with events tailored for the enjoyment of all ages. At the children’s area, “Thrifty Foods Kids Zone”, the young ones can enjoy a wide variety of FREE rides and events. For details check on Children’s Events For those who would like to relax and enjoy the talents of our local musicians brought to you by “Gateway Casinos & Entertainment” on Friday and Saturday evenings. Click on Stage Entertainment Go Dog Go (canine demonstrations and information) For details click on Go Dog Go While taking in the many events offered at the Festival, check out what the local community groups and businesses in Campbell River have to offer at the Community Corner and Trade Show booths, Because the Community Organizations do so much for our City, we provide a space free of charge where they can put up a booth to say who they are and what they do for their community or sell their raffle tickets or items for their charitable endeavors. If you get hungry or thirsty we have a good selection for Food Booths and a Beverage Garden. For a list of onsite booths click on Onsite Booths
