Event description

Description

In southern Oregon, the famed Rogue River historically hosted massive runs of both chinook (king) and coho (silver) salmon, so Medford is the perfect place for the unique, family-friendly Southern Oregon Smoked Salmon Festival, which celebrates the mouth-watering sapidity of smoked salmon in myriad forms. Attendees enjoy the opportunity to sample an array of smoked salmon offerings, while enjoying local and regional wines, beer, and other foods from the Rogue Valley. A highlight of the festival is the smoked salmon competition, in which cash prizes are awarded to the winner as determined by the voting public—for a modest entry fee and advance registration, the contest is open to anyone. Festival attendees receive three voting tickets with purchase of festival tickets. Throughout this one-day event, which runs from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Medford’s beautiful Pearl Blossom Park, live music entertains guests and children enjoy carnival games and the park playground.

The Southern Oregon Smoked Salmon Festival not only celebrates an Oregon culinary mainstay, but also supports and fantastic cause: the event is the major public fundraiser for Maslow Project, A nonprofit grassroots organization based in Medford that providing basic needs, crisis intervention, advocacy, street outreach, and essential support services to homeless children and their families in Southern Oregon. The project’s overall mission is to offer every homeless child and youth the probability of success and the opportunity for a better life by providing resources for basic needs, removing barriers to education and employment, and fostering self-sufficiency in a collaborative and empowering environment. A key objective of this locally conceived organization is to help provide enough stability in the lives of children so that they can stay in school and complete their educations.
