Our annual SALMON COME HOME 2018 event is set for Sunday, October 21st and is co-hosted with the City of Coquitlam.

The FREE family event celebrates the return of the salmon and runs from 11 a.m. through to 3 p.m. at the Hoy Creek Hatchery.

The highlight is viewing the returning chum salmon in Hoy Creek. The event features live salmon demonstrations; hatchery tours; musical entertainment; interactive children’s activities; food, and exhibits.
