The Alaska Marine Conservation Council is excited to host the first ever Homer Halibut Festival on September 19th & 20th, 2015!
Homer is often called the Halibut Capital of the World, and this is a title we want to celebrate! We are kicking off the Homer Halibut Festival as an opportunity for the community to celebrate the iconic halibut resource of Homer and of Alaska. The weekend’s activities will provide ample opportunity to learn about halibut science and fisheries management, enjoy a community meal with friends, run the 5K Halibut Hustle and through music, storytelling and art, honor the fish and fishing traditions that have enriched the End of the Road. Through knowledge and celebration, we hope to increase awareness and stewardship of both halibut and marine ecosystems.
