Feb. 10-12: Wild Steelhead Festival in Healdsburg

Any other time in the year, it might seem socially unacceptable to go out in public and profess one’s love of wild salmon. Luckily, this coming week is the perfect opportunity to spend an entire weekend with other fish-loving enthusiasts at the fifth annual Wild Steelhead Festival in Healdsburg, a three-day event of fascinating fish festivities for the whole family. There’s a Friday-night dinner at Villa Chanticleer with guest speaker Jim Norton, director of PBS’ Salmon: Running the Gauntlet, followed by Saturday’s main event on the plaza, including fly casting and winetasting. On Sunday, a family fun day brings plenty of relaxation at Lake Sonoma. Come join this delicious and informative local event Friday—Sunday, Feb. 10—12. Plaza and Lake Sonoma events start at 10am and are free; dinner at Villa Chanticleer is at 6pm, tickets $40—$45. 707.484.6438.
