This Father's Day in Trinidad ... Something's Fishy!

Greater Trinidad Chamber's Big FUNdraising Event

Trinidad Fish Festival - Cat with Fish BBQing on Main (Trinity) Street

52'nd Annual Trinidad Fish Festival FUNdraiser

Father's Day, Sunday June 21st from 11-4pm

The Trinidad Fish Festival began as a $1 all-you-can-eat crab feed in 1957. This small town festival has fed thousands of people over the years. All festival workers are kind-hearted village folk. Event highlights include whitefish and salmon dinners, free live music (thanks donor artists), a children’s activities area, and a street fair from Town Hall to the Memorial Lighthouse. New this year, Trinidad Bay activities at the Pier! There are also Trinidad Head Lighthouse tours, Coast Guard helicopter rescue demos and lots more! This fundraiser supports our Greater Trinidad Chamber of Commerce, local scholarships, the "Discover your Trinidad" visitor promotions and other local programs that support our local businesses community. This Father's Day, come to Trinidad and celebrate! Bring the whole family, all are welcome!

Trinidad Fish Festival Sponsorship - Show Us the Money!

Please visit our FUNdraiser Sponsor Page to sign-up online, or contact the Chamber for sponsorship forms and for more info.

While whooping it up for fish and our local fishing industry is fun, we also have lots of work to do at the festival. Even with our helpful volunteer's donated labor, and lots of donated entertainment, breaking even while serving over a thousand dinners is not easy. We still have funds to raise. How will we do it? With Trinidad Fish Festival Sponsorships. Sponsorships are an excellent way for businesses to demonstrate their support for the local community, and at the same time receive significant publicity and recognition for it. We offer incentives unique to each commitment level. Thanks to our generous Fish Festival Sponsors, we are able to continue our chamber mission - Promoting the Economic, Civic and Social Welfare of the People of Greater Trinidad.

Sponsorship Levels: Whale, Festival Major Sponsor - $2000+; Great White, Event Sponsor - $1000; Salmon, Patron - $500; Sea Lion, Program Sponsor - $300; Rockfish, Business Sponsor - $200; Starfish, Individual Sponsor - $100; Crab, Pet Sponsor - $50; Oyster, Artist/Student - $25; Clam, Child - $10.
