Salmonstock is a celebration of Alaskan salmon and the people who depend upon them. It's also about the power we have in protecting our resources and our livelihoods.

Stand up and join your fellow Alaskans in our fight for the wild salmon that bring us together and stop the proposed threats such as the the Pebble and Chuitna mines. We invite anyone who loves Alaska, our salmon, and spectacular music to spend the weekend with us, to show the world why we are so passionate about our renewable resources and what we can do to ensure another millennia of great fishing.

Salmonstock will showcase two stages featuring top Alaskan, Northwestern and National artists. The center arena of the fairgrounds will be bordered by an elite, hand picked roster of local restaurant booths exhibiting their individual prowess in preparing Alaskan cuisine, and several Alaskan brews will be offered in an extensive beer garden.

Available in another area will be Alaskan arts and crafts from local merchants, while an informal center will provide festival goers with the knowledge and resources necessary to make their own positive impact on wild salmon habitat in Alaska.

Tickets are sold in a 3 day pass ($80 June 16-July16, $95 July 17- August 3rd, $115 at the gate). Friday day pass is $40, Saturday day pass is $50, and Sunday day pass is $40. Tickets are available through CenterTix or at the gate.
