In this August 2011 photo, hundreds of Salmonstock attendees form a human mural orchestrated by Mavis Muller in Ninilchik. Organizers said the first Salmonstock festival has help spread the Renewable Resources Coalition and Foundation’s goal of celebration, awareness and avocation for the protection of renewable salmon runs. The group estimates the second annual Salmonstock will double in attendance to about 7,000 attendees this year.

Salmonstock 2012 will be hosted Friday through Sunday at the Kenai Peninsula Fairgrounds in Ninilchik. The event features more than 30 Alaska and Outside bands on four stages. More than 3,000 people attended 2011’s event, organizers said. 

Salmonstock is organized by the Renewable Resources Coalition and is billed as a “celebration of fish and music and the people who depend harmoniously upon them.” 

“It’s also about the power we have in protecting our resources and our livelihoods,” according to the event’s Facebook page. “More than just two days of celebrating what we have, it is an event that offers every attendee the tools needed to help preserve it.”

The festival also features crafts and performance art, info booths and seminars, children’s activities, and Alaska brew and food. Camping is available near the festival grounds, with free shuttle service. Three-day passes are $110 advance, $130 starting Aug. 2. Ages 12 and younger are free but must be accompanied by a ticket-holding adult.

On Friday, gates open at noon, vendors are open from noon to 1 a.m. and music is scheduled from 12:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. 

On Saturday, gates open at 11 a.m., vendors are open from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. and music is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. On Sunday gates open at 11 a.m., vendors are open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and music is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
