Inarguably, salmon plays a vital role in the culture and community of the Pacific Northwest. And the Nooksack Salmon Enhancement Association (NSEA) is a local community-based nonprofit organization dedicated to restoring sustainable wild salmon runs right here in Whatcom County. As part of their annual fundraising efforts, they team up with us here at Boundary Bay Brewery every year to bring you Salmon at the Bay!
Salmon at the Bay is a celebration of salmon through art, food and music. One of the ways they raise money is through the NSEA photography display up on the walls of our bistro – available for purchase for just $40 each. Proceeds from all the art sales go towards supporting NSEA’s salmon habitat restoration programs. Another way they raise money for the programs is through their annual Salmon Dinner in our Beer Garden.
This Friday (August 5th), from 5-8:30pm, you can enjoy picked summer vegetables; qunioa salad with fresh herbs and feta cheese; fresh green salad with blue cheese, dried cranberries and pecans; corn with herbed butter; rolls with garlic herb butter and delicious grilled salmon with NSEA’s secret sauce! Plus Mallard’s vanilla ice cream and fresh berry sauce (made with local strawberries and raspberries) for dessert. Tickets are $20 at the door or $15 in advance – tickets available at NSEA and here at Boundary Bay Brewery.
At 9pm, the celebration will continue at with live music from Nick Vigarino. Nick’s original music captures the expressive passion of the blues masters and he will blow you away with his guitar, dobro and harmonica skills! The show is 21+ only and $7 if you didn’t attend the salmon dinner.
