Salmonfest presents Rising Appalachia and Searson at Salmonfest 2017. Both acts are anchored by sisters, as we proudly continue to provide strong female acts as part of our salmon-love event. Come enjoy Salmonfest 2017, August 4-6th at the Kenai Peninsula Fairgrounds in Ninilchik.
Rising Appalachia plays a meditative, musical act with thumping rhythms and strong lyrics to entrance the crowd. And we invite the high energy and then some of Searson for a rollicking good time. So much music to get to know and enjoy as we get together this August.
In addition, Searson from Ottawa and Foy Vance from Ireland provide an international flavor. In one adventurous and magical weekend, we will be offering 60 plus bands over 3 days on 4 stages, some of Alaska’s most dynamic art and crafts, special brews, tasty food, along with an expanded kids program, along with the unusual and usual special surprises. There will be 15 national acts anchoring the music including as the Grateful Dead of jamgrass, Railroad Earth. Many of the headline acts have already been booked. Long time festival stalwarts Rusted Root will be making their first appearance, Rising Appalachia, The California Honeydrops, Pimps of Joytime, Foy Vance, Steve Poltz, Painted Mandolin, Searson and Dustin Thomas are already booked and several more national acts are pending.
For those interested in getting engaged, an ever improving ‘Salmon Causeway’ will be ‘spawned’ by Cook Inletkeeper. This increasing symbiotic partnership with the festival continues to grow and CIK will be taking the lead as well in making Salmonfest the first major Alaskan event to create a ZERO WASTE FESTIVAL.
Salmonfest is supported by and benefits The Kachemak Bay Conservation Society with support from Cook Inletkeeper. KBCS is a longstanding Homer-based non-profit organization that seeks to educate the public, and both protect and promote Alaska’s fish-filled waters.
Because of the continuing support of our patrons, sponsors and staff, the festival could donate nearly $25,000 to our conservation efforts.
As always kids under 12 are free when accompanied by an adult. Visit Salmonfestalaska.org and Salmonfest on Facebook for much more information. Please like and share with all your favorite festival friends! Stay tuned for more Salmonfest news!
