Port Moody Fingerling Festival


Port Moody’s annual Fingerling Festival is a fabulous, family event right here in the V3H. Each year, with the help of local residents, the Port Moody Ecological Society releases tens of thousands of fingerling salmon into Noons Creek, and on into the sea. This year’s event is fast approaching, so read on to find out more!

This year’s details, taken from the Ecological Society’s website:

Saturday, May 1 from 11 am to 3 pm

Noons Creek Hatchery and Skating Arena in Port Moody

  • Release young chum salmon into Noons Creek and help them on their journey to the Pacific Ocean
  • Hear Bobs and Lolo – Performances at 11:30am, 12:30pm and 2pm in the arena.
  • Learn about local wildlife from groups such as OWL and Critter Care.
  • Visit displays from stewardship organizations around the Lower Mainland to discover what you can do to take better care of the environment.
  • Enjoy a wide variety of children’s activities including First Nation stencils, nature puzzles and more.
  • Join Rev. David Spence for a blessing of the salmon on Noons Creek at 11 am.

Here’s a map to help you get there, it’s right behind the Port Moody Rec Centre. Visitors are encouraged to use public transit or carpool, as parking is limited.
