The Watershed Festival is an annual celebration featuring art, discovery, music and family fun. This year’s festival will include a number of displays from local organizations, walking tours, the Insect Extravaganza, a salmon barbecue and other great coffee and food options.  We look forward to having you there!

Congratulations to 2017’s Nisqually Poster Contest winner, Oliver Schrader, a 2nd grader from Olympia Community School! Check out the winner “Turtle in Water,” plus all of the other entries, at this year’s festival. The theme for this year’s contest was “Life Under the Water.”

Be sure to bring your own t-shirt to the festival to make a fish print with a Nisqually salmon! That and other activities will be part of the day-long celebration of nature at the 28th Annual Nisqually Watershed Festival!

Check back for the Mainstage event schedule and other family-friendly activities!
