Salmon Festival

Salmon Festival

Each year the Oroville Salmon Festival celebrates the return of the salmon to the Feather River. Join the celebration by viewing the salmon run at the fish hatchery, running in the 3k Salmon Dash, wandering through the street fair, and tasting salmon dishes prepared in various styles.

This family-friendly event always takes place on the fourth Saturday in September.
