Bird Fair and Festivals
What: In many countries bird festivals celebrate birds through art, music, food, literature and other cultural activities. By combining photography exhibits, wildlife art displays, music inspired by nature, nature- or bird-themed book signings, with traditional activities like bird walks, workshops and symposia, you can celebrate birds and nature in a unique and inspiring way.
Where: Partnership with a municipality is essential. Municipal parks provide best venues, particularly if public washrooms are nearby!
When: Best to do when birds are moving through. The spring and fall migrations will offer the chance to see the most bird species.
Who: This is an opportunity to appeal to new audiences – multicultural associations, schools, outdoors clubs, photographic clubs, etc.
Cost: The cost will depend on the extent of your event. Check our "Funding Your Event" section for ideas on how to raise funds to promote host your event.
