Once every two years, the Original Browns Point Salmon Bake takes place at the Browns Point Improvement Club (201 Ton-A-Wan-Da Ave NE, Tacoma, WA 98422). This year, the family-friendly festivities are taking place on August 2nd and 3rd, from noon to 8pm.
The tasty tradition began in 1946 with Jerry Meeker who cooked up some fresh Alaskan salmon over alder wood fire pits. The cooks behind the Salmon Bake still make delicious salmon in the same “authentic” way that Meeker did, but now, there’s also burgers, clam chowder and milkshakes available! On Saturday night there is even a beer garden that’s open until midnight.
But food isn’t all the weekend has to offer—games, crafts and an art show with local Northwest artists are all part of the (free!) fun.
“Browns Point has great community involvement, and lots of people who love volunteering,” says REALTOR® Brandy Brazeau. “The Salmon Bake is a great way to meet neighbors in the Browns Point area, although people come from far and wide to enjoy the bake!”
