call for artistsIf you strum, sing, paint, cook, smoke, sew or throw (pottery), you can share your art at SALMON JAM and COPPER RIVER WILD SALMON FESTIVAL!

Why support Salmon Jam?

By supporting Salmon Jam, you support art in Cordova! Salmon Jam is Cordova Arts’ annual fundraiser, paying for all the art performances and community initiatives Cordova Arts brings to Cordova year-round! This year, we brought in great performers like world renown mexican brass band Metales M5, who in addition to performing a fabulous show, even taught a band and spanish class while they were here! Cordova Arts also supports the community by providing annual scholarships to art-enthused CHS grads every year, bringing music and art performances and projects to the schools, helping to establish a new performance venue in the Cordova Center, and much more! So to all you jamming out in the crowd, thanks for helping us art-ify Cordova!
