Issaquah Salmon Days Festival
This year’s “Thrills and Gills” theme and design highlight the history and tradition of family and community building fun that Salmon Days has be known and recognized for over the last 43 years and longer. Before there was Salmon Days, in the 1920s and 30s Issaquah hosted the Issaquah Rodeo and what could be a more thrilling ride than that? Blending the rodeo cowboy with the salmon is the brainchild of graphic designer Robin Dale Spicer. An enthusiastic Director of Festivals Robin Kelley states of the theme “we love the movement, action and quirkiness of the cowboy riding the salmon. It fits us – it’s fishy and fun.”
