Leavenworth Spring Bird Fest

May 13-16, 2021

Come bird with us, discovering the natural beauty and wonders of Central Washington!

Celebrate the return of migratory birds in the midst of peak wildflower season. Enjoy the excitement of birding field trips and workshops. Take part in speaker events, music, visual arts, picnics, and activities for all ages and abilities. All of this is happening in beautiful Leavenworth, WA and throughout the Wenatchee River Valley. Bird Fest happens in association with World Migratory Bird Day. Bird Fest contributes a list of all birds seen during the festival to ebird, the world’s largest biodiversity-related community science project.

We are planning for a hybrid model festival in 2021 that will include virtual events and small, in person events. We will continue to follow state and local COVID guidance. As is the nature of planning events right now, our plans could change as the situation changes.
