As usual, it’s going to be a busy fun-filled weekend of Fourth of July activities in Fort Bragg. You won’t want to miss a thing — especially this one: “The World Largest Salmon BBQ”, held each year on the first Saturday in July. This year it takes place July 6 in the beautiful Noyo Harbor.
BBQ Tickets are $30 at the door or $23 at Harvest Market. Admission to the general goings on is free, so you if barbecued salmon isn’t your thing, you can still come and listen to the music and enjoy the afternoon in Noyo Harbor.
The BBQ Starts at 11am and goes to 6 pm. Dogs are welcome — just not in dining area.
It’s All For A Great Cause: Restoring The Local Salmon Fisheries
The annual BBQ benefits the Salmon Restoration Association (SRA), a group of fishermen, biologists, and concerned businesses and citizens of the area, started in 1971 to raise funds to improve the salmon fisheries of the region.
The SRA now works to restore streams and creeks to there once healthy habitats where Coho salmon can spawn on their own and their young can live and grow until its time to return to the ocean. Many local non-profit environmental organizations, as well as Trout Unlimited, the California Conservation Corps, NOAA, California Fish and Game and other government entities are involved in these projects.
