64th Annual Depoe Bay Native American Style Salmon Bake

Annual Native American Salmon Bake

PLEASE CHECK BACK IN MID-AUGUST FOR EVENT UPDATES

Depoe Bay's first "Free Fish Fry" back in the 1930's was the beginning of today's annual Salmon Bake. The locals gathered with friends and neighbors to share their own catch and their fish stories.

Over the past 60+ years, this gathering has evolved into the current "Indian Style" Salmon Bake, held annually on the 3rd Saturday in September. Salmon is cooked in the traditional manner used for generations by Native Coastal tribes.

Each year, over 2,000 pounds of salmon are slow-roasted to perfection on alder stakes over a 80-foot long fire line. Come enjoy friends and neighbors, traditional Native-American dancing and drumming, other live music, and of course, an amazing salmon meal.
