The Salmon Dinner

The Antigonish Rivers Association is a partner with the St. Mary’s River Association in hosting (every second year) a major fund raising dinner and auction. This event goes back more than 10 years when it began as part of the Nova Scotia Salmon Association Fall Meeting. The beautiful Fall foliage and terrific salmon fishing means that anglers from across the province and beyond gather in Antigonish County providing a wonderful opportunity to support local organizations dedicated to protecting and enhancing this great fishery. The dinner has evolved as stand-alone event featuring a full three course meal, silent auctions, raffles, after-dinner auction and musical entertainment. On October 20, 2012 this year’s edition of the dinner will expand in size and add an international fly tying exposition. The dinner owes it success to the generosity of local sponsors and donors, the anglers who attend and bid, and to a hardworking group of volunteers.
