Event description




We'll see you in Ninilchik!

Salmonfest has become widely recognized both nationally and within the state as the most compelling and dynamic event in Alaska. Every year over 6,000 people turn the Kenai Peninsula village of Ninilchik into a city as families and friends fill the region with encampments full of music, food, fish and love. Over the three day weekend many of Alaska’s top food, crafts, art and brews are available throughout the grounds and a family friendly atmosphere, including a daily children’s program is part of the four stage extravaganza that includes over 50 acts.


Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

Salmonfest is open to all ages. Certain areas including beer gardens are only open to adults over the age of 21. Children 12 and under are free when accompanied by a ticket-holding adult. Teen tickets are available for youth age 13-17. Senior tickets are for those who are 65+. Adult tickets apply to those who are age 18-64.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

Parking is available for a small fee across the highway from the fairgrounds. All proceeds support local youth organizations. Because of limited parking space, please park at your campground and make use of the free Salmonfest shuttle that runs all weekend. More information can be found on our website (salmonfestalaska.org).

What can't I bring to the event?

Guns, glass, pets, outside alcohol and illegal drugs are not permitted anywhere on the festival site.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

You can reach Salmonfest by emailing info@salmonfestalaska.org or calling 907-435-0525.

You may transfer your ticket to another person. Email info@salmonfestalaska.org for help.

Can I update my registration information?

You can update your information via your Eventbrite account.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Yes. Please bring either the print out of your ticket, or the PDF confimation file on your phone.

What is the refund policy?

Tickets are non-refundable. You can, however, transfer your ticket to someone else's name.

The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?

It's best to transfer the ticket into a different name. Please email info@salmonfestalaska.org for help. It is okay if you give your print out to someone with a different name. For this reason, be very careful with your ticket printout. Once the ticket is used and checked off our list, another person will not be able to enter with the same ticket.
