Donkey Creek Chum Festival

November 16, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Every year, the greater Gig Harbor community celebrates the return of the salmon to our local waters. The Chum Festival serves to remind us that the quality of the water, and the habitat it supports, connects us all. Join festival hosts Harbor WildWatch and the Harbor History Museum, as well as community partners, for a fun afternoon of activities as we commit to new ways to improve and protect our waterways.
