Copper River Salmon Jam is two days of live music, dancing, kids’ activities, artisan fair, running events (marathon, half-marathon, 10k and 5k), a wild food cook-off and lots of Copper River Salmon! Cordova’s annual Copper River Salmon Jam is a cultural event that benefits the residents and visitors of Cordova and helps to make our community a place where people want to live year-round. Sustainable Alaskan fisheries, salmon ecology, and the importance of salmon to local economies are shared with festival-goers through hands-on activities, booths, displays, and is at the heart of the entire event.
Not only do patrons enjoy the activities and guest musicians during Salmon Festival weekend, but Salmon Jam Music Festival is the annual fundraiser for Cordova Arts Council and proceeds from Salmon Jam help support year-round cultural and education activities in Cordova. These cultural activities make art available to our isolated community and educate Cordova youth, with artists offering special performances during the school day for all students.
