Celebrate the annual trek of millions of songbirds from their tropical homes to their summer breeding grounds! This Festival is one of the main events for Goose Creek State Park during the year and is lots of fun for all ages! Activities throughout the day include bird-related hikes, games, crafts and programs for everyone from intense birders to families looking for a fun day out. The Festival will be highlighted by a "Birds of Prey - LIVE!" show and a Bird-a-thon Competition, in which teams, from beginner to advanced, compete for prizes by attempting to identify as many bird species as they can during the day (or the night prior too!). This annual festival is free to the public. Contact Goose Creek State Park by phone or email for more information.
