Salmon cook-off rescheduled due to provincial fire ban

The Great Salmon Cook-off was rescheduled due to the province-wide fire ban that was issued last week

The Great Salmon Cook-off was rescheduled due to the province-wide fire ban that was issued last week which saw a ban on all fires, and includes all open burning, campfires and fireworks.

Because the event has salmon cooking on its open fire pits, the Historic Site decided to hold off on the event until later in September said April Hilland, Visitor Experience Product Development Officer with the National Historic Site.

“Given that it would probably take a couple days of rain to lift that fire ban we’d rather give people a weeks’ notice rather than cancel last minute when the salmon is ordered and thawing,” she said about the reschedule of the annual event.

In order to ensure there was ample notice and no food wastage happening the FSJ Historic Site decided to reschedule the event for September 19 which will see the event teaming up with Metis Day celebrations.

“It could be a big waste of food and we want to make sure out of town visitors have a chance to make alternate plans since we have people coming in from Prince George too,” Hilland said. “What I’m hearing back from the salmon teams is that the date works better for them.”
