About the event

On Saturday, June 1st, the quaint Village of Caledonia and the Big Springs Museum will host the second annual Trout Festival, celebrating its history as the birthplace of modern American trout fishing. In 1864, the godfather of fisheries science, started the oldest fish hatchery in the Western Hemisphere along Spring Creek in Caledonia. Green’s research and work at the hatchery led to the spread in diversity and quality of trout fishing across the world. Spring Creek and the Caledonia fish hatchery remain a Mecca for trout anglers.

Trout Festival, which will be on and around the Big Springs Museum’s grounds, includes education, shopping, fishing, play, live music, food, and drink—all centered around the regal trout. With the exception of shopping, food, and beverages, all events are free to the public. The festival will kick off at 9:00 a.m. and conclude at 11 p.m.
