Fall Fish Festival
The Visitor Center is located three miles north of South Lake Tahoe on Highway 89. Join the fun and participate in this free family event which has become one of the most fascinating educational and wildlife viewing events in Northern California.
The Festival is a two-day event held each fall. The Festival celebrates the dramatic and colorful spawning behaviors of the Kokanee Salmon, where a close-up look at this natural display is available in Taylor Creek and the Stream Profile Chamber. The Festival is a family event encouraging participation by children and their parents in a wide variety of educational and entertaining events. Back this year will be the Salmon Feed, children’s activities, educational programs and booths, stream-side programs, a children’s run, 5k, 10k, and half-marathon trail runs.
