February 24 – 26, 2017
Scattered to the ends of the earth by the winds and the tides, once a year the famous Fisher Poets gather in Astoria, Oregon to share their craft. A gathering of musicians, artists, storytellers, and yes, poets who are also in the commercial fishing fleet, the Gathering of the Fisher Poets is a celebration of their industry in poetry, prose and song. In Astoria’s pub’s, restaurants, and galleries the Fisher Poets will read for each other and the hundreds of guests who come to hear their authentic poetry and prose.
Come stay at the Astoria Riverwalk Inn and experience this unique celebration of art and the ocean!
The Astoria Riverwalk Inn will be offering guests a complimentary shuttle to get them to and from all of the venues hosting the fantastic Fisher Poets. In addition, any guest extending their stay to three days will receive a 50% discount on their third night!
