BirdFest 2019

February 16 @ 9:30 am - February 17 @ 4:00 pm

In alignment with Callaway Gardens’ mission of “connecting people and nature in ways that benefit both”, we are excited to announce our first BirdFest, February 16th and 17th!

This two-day festival will feature bird walks, nature-based workshops, arts and crafts, live bird shows, kids’ games, guest speakers, and more! Most activities are free with gate admission, and for those individuals wishing for a more intimate bird experience, two private ticketed events will also be offered: an ‘Early Bird Breakfast’ and our ‘Birds and Brews’ Dinner.

Kids of all ages can participate in a Gardens-wide scavenger hunt, take photos with exotic bird species, create a variety of bird-centric arts and crafts, dissect owl pellets, and much, much more. BirdFest promises to be an educational and exciting opportunity to learn more about our feathered friends. We hope to see you here!

This festival is included in general Gardens admission, Saturday 2/16 and Sunday, 2/17, 2019 (FREE for Annual Members and Resort Guests)!
