Nisqually Watershed Festival


The 30th Annual Nisqually Watershed Festival is an annual celebration of nature featuring art, discovery, music and family fun. The Festival includes live performances, displays from local organizations, walking tours, the Insect Extravaganza, a salmon barbecue and other great coffee and food options. Watch a salmon dissection, listen to traditional stories, learn about raptors, bears, and bugs, tour the Refuge trails or Nisqually Nearshore, make a salmon lifecycle keychain and other crafts, and bring a t-shirt to make a fish print with a Nisqually salmon!

Entrance is free all day! Festival parking will be at River Ridge High School, 350 River Ridge Drive, Lacey, with a shuttle to the Refuge running every 15 minutes.
