Please Welcome Our New 2016 Salmon Festival Intern!




My name is Melanie Watson, and I’m so excited to be the intern for the Salmon Festival this year, joining the great team of people who work to plan this event!

I just finished my first year of college at Grand Valley State University as a Hospitality and Tourism Management major, with an emphasis in Meeting and Event Planning, and a minor in French. I’m actually from Raleigh, North Carolina, but am eager to learn more about the Grand Haven area through the planning and execution of the Salmon Festival! As for hobbies, I enjoy doing art such as painting and photography, as well as fashion, music, hiking, and eating chocolate.

I’m looking forward to meeting all of you at the Salmon Festival this year on September 16-18! If you have any questions or concerns about it, or any suggestions, please email me at

Follow us on social media for more information about the event. We’re on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram! #ghsalmonfest
