Issaquah Salmon Days – a local tradition

    Issaquah natural beauty. Issaquah's natural beauty - mountains, water, trees.

    Trophies2Go is based in Issaquah, WA, which is a small town 15 miles east of Seattle.  Our company has deep roots in this community, as we began as Issaquah Trophy in 1987.

    One of the many great things about living and working in Issaquah is the natural beauty that surrounds this suburban town. We have the Issaquah Alps that surround our city, beautiful Lake Sammamish on our northern end, and Issaquah Creek.  Issaquah Creek is home to many native critters, including three species of Pacific Salmon – Sockeye, Coho and Chinook.  Over a number of years, these salmon make the journey from Issaquah Creek out to the Pacific Ocean and then back again to spawn and die.

    Each year during the first weekend of October, our town celebrates the return of the salmon to the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery located on Issaquah Creek with Salmon Days. This huge festival includes a parade on Saturday, a 5-K run, arts and craft stalls, food vendors, and entertainment.  Over 200,000 visitors flock to our little city to participate in the celebration.

    We love Salmon Days and are so fortunate to live in this awesome community! To find out more about Salmon Days and the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery, click on the links.  See you at the fair this weekend!
