Every August, thousands of pounds of fresh Alaskan salmon are flown in to Payson City for this hearty meal of fire-grilled salmon served with a baked potato, sweet local corn on the cob, salad and dessert.
This annual celebration attracts visitors from all-over including many bus groups not only for the salmon but for the entertainment as well. Local firemen, commonly seen wearing their yellow coats, busily prepare and cook the fish to perfection.
Musicians and singers serenade the crowd while in line, which with years of tradition is quick and efficient. The wait is well worth it as you’re sure to leave this small town with memories of this culinary experience. Come and enjoy a delicious meal with visitors and locals alike.
This year’s supper will include: Salmon, grilled over dried fruitwood fires, baked potato, corn on the cob, salad, roll, and cookie! Plus, great entertainment throughout the evening!
