A special yearly event is the Squaxin Island Tribe’s Blessing of the First Salmon which is held on the beach right next door. This includes a ceremony followed by a traditional salmon, clam, oyster, and Indian fry bread feast to which the public is invited. This takes place in August before the Indian fishing season. During the Tribal fishing season, nets teeming with salmon are pulled onto the beach in front of the bulkhead. The Tribal Canoe Journey also takes place in August. Colorful Tribal canoes are launched from the adjacent beach, where local tribes begin their journey. Oysterfest in nearby Shelton is held in October. This event includes an international oyster shucking contest, great food, and entertainment.
Other year round nearby entertainment includes gaming and entertainment at Little Creek Casino and golfing at the brand new Salish Cliffs 18 hole course. Enjoy wine tasting at Walter Dacon Winery or purchase fresh local shell fish at Taylor Shellfish Retail Store, all just a few miles away. Boaters can cruise to nearby Percival Landing in Olympia for shopping and dining. Arcadia has become a popular spot for Kayakers who paddle Hammersley Inlet into Shelton on the incoming tide and back to Arcadia on the outgoing tide. Hope Island State Park, just across the bay, is another favorite destination with hiking trails and clamming in season.
