Event Details

28th Annual Nisqually Watershed Festival at the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge
Saturday September 30, 2017, 10am to 4pm

The Watershed Festival is a free, daylong event featuring art, discovery, music and family fun, along with the celebration of Nisqually’s history and culture.

This year’s festival will include the all new “Insect Extravaganza,” where guests will have a chance to view insects from around the world. There will be storytelling in the Red Salmon Tent, guided walking tours, and great coffee and food options, including the always-popular salmon barbecue.

Several non-profits that work in the Nisqually watershed will also be on hand to share educational activities and information. Don’t forget to bring a t-shirt or use paper to make your own Nisqually salmon print, learn about the salmon lifecycle by making a keychain, and get your face painted.
