Three Salmon Run mini-galas will take the place of our usual Salmon Tales event. Our three Salmon Runs will take place on three consecutive Saturdays: September 19th and 26th and on October 3rd.

The Salmon Run mini-galas will be COVID safe- held outdoors, each with a maximum of 35 guests, with social distancing and face coverings when not eating or drinking.

Three traditional salmon runs on our local rivers were in the spring (n̓ty̓tyix- chinook), early summer (kísuʔ- coho), and late summer/fall (tʕan̓yaʔ- late sockeye). From these salmon, we have named our three Salmon Run events:

N̓ty̓tyix Salmon Run, September 19, 2020. Sold Out.

Kísuʔ Salmon Run, September 26, 2020. Sold Out.

Tʕan̓yaʔ Salmon Run, October 3, 2020. Tickets are $100 per person. Only 35 seats available.

At each Salmon Run, guests will have dinner and drinks in a beautiful outdoor setting along the Little Spokane River, will be entertained by Salish School of Spokane students and staff, will hear testimonials from our families, and will have the opportunity to make a donation or pledge of support for Salish School of Spokane.
