Depoe Bay’s Traditional Salmon Bake

Due to circumstances beyond our control, we must cancel the 65th Annual Salmon Bake previously scheduled on September 18, 2021. The decision to cancel was met with great sadness and disappointment. Our hearts couldn’t be fuller due to the outpouring of support from our community members willing to step-up to support the Salmon Bake. The Chamber appreciates all of the individuals and businesses that have gone above and beyond, especially during these difficult times. Salmon Bake will return in 2022!

History of the Salmon Bake

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, live music, and of course, an amazing salmon meal.
