Our salmon dinner is an event you don’t want to miss!

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. Due to the pandemic it has been delayed until further notice.

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.

Our most recent dinner in 2019 has expanded in size and added 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.
