The Coho Festival features a famous Coho salmon barbecue, the Coho Garden, stewardship zone, kids park, main stage and the Squamish Nation Village. The day starts with a Coho Run, Coho Swim, pancake breakfast and much more.
The Coho Salmon Barbecue has been the cornerstone of the Coho Festival since it’s inception in 1979. Most years we feature wild Coho Salmon that is local and/or sustainably harvested. The meal is rounded out with BC corn on the cob and locally grown salad. All plates and utensils are either made from recycled material and/or recyclable.
The Coho Garden offers local craft beers, cider and premium wines. Pick up your salmon dinner, grab a beverage and enjoy the waterfront view all while tapping your toe to the live band on the main stage. As we are a family event children 9 and under may accompany their parents into the Coho Garden.
The Stewardship Zone has over 20 exhibitors who are all involved in rejuvenating, maintaining and improving our streams, rivers, oceans, parks and forests for now and generations to come. Guests of all ages will learn more about the environment and how to be better stewards of what we have. A must see at the festival.
The Coho Kids Park is filled with fun activities for children of all ages. The theme is centred around education, art & culture and outdoor activities.
The Squamish Nation will again be participating in the festival welcoming all to Swá?wi (Ambleside Park). The Squamish Nation Village display unique traditions and cultures including their interconnections and relationship to the salmon. There are also weaver and carver artisans on hand to demonstrate their craft.
