PLEASE! Someone send me to cover Salmonstock! This sounds great!
From the Press Release they sent me:
Salmonstock is a celebration of Alaskan salmon and the people who depend upon
them. Itʼs 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.
