Once a Russian settlement dating back to the early 1800’s, Ninilchik currently stands as a must-visit Alaska destination featuring stunning scenery and ample outdoor activities. Outdoor enthusiasts will love locations like Ninilchik State Recreation Area and Deep Creek State Recreation Area, which offer opportunities for sightseeing, claiming, hiking, and more. Visitors should stop by the town’s famous Russian Orthodox Church that’s more than two centuries old, and the town’s most distinctive building.

Vendors!

We cannot begin to express how excited we are about the possibility of an in person festival this summer. As you can imagine, we are in daily discussions, analysis and planning regarding how this year will play out. As of now, we intend to institute some COVID guidelines and protocols but exactly what that will entail will be more clearly defined as we move closer to our date.

We are in the process of forming a committee of health professionals, Salmonfest staff and community members to help us determine the best course of action. We want everyone to feel safe and ecstatic to participate.

Like many events and venues around the world, we are inclined to require all patrons, staff, artists and vendors to provide a vaccination certification, a recent negative test result and/or provide onsite testing before being allowed onsite.

Please bear in mind that all of this is in the preliminary stage but we want to make it clear that we intend to have strict protocols in place to provide the safest festival possible.

If the potential COVID protocols are something that might make you resistant or uncomfortable, please don't hesitate to wait a year to apply or take the year off. While we understand that there are widely different ideas and perceptions around COVID, Salmonfest intends to take the most vigilant approach for the well being and safety of all concerned. Whatever guidelines we put in place will not be negotiable. If you are a returning vendor and choose not to join us this year, your first right of refusal will remain in place for the 2022 festival. However, your location and tier will not be able to be guaranteed. In order to retain your first right of refusal for 2022, please let us know what you intend to do so that we can hold a place in the festival.

We appreciate your patience and flexibility as we try to navigate these extremely challenging times to make the best and most enjoyable festival possible.

Thank you,

Hannah Stearns, Vendor Coordinator
