The Festival was crafted as the only 3-day birding festival in San Francisco Bay, and one that would introduce the Bay Area public to the world of birding, the fastest growing outdoor recreation in America. Its roots are in a cause–to set one weekend aside each year to celebrate the migration of more than 1 million shorebirds, hundreds of thousands of ducks, geese, osprey, hawks and other wildlife at the peak of migration, through San Pablo Bay, the largest bay in the San Francisco Bay Estuary, and to offer access to areas of San Francisco Bay’s north shore, many not generally open to the public.
Sited on Mare Island, Vallejo, a former US Navy base, the Festival has evolved into an anchor for the Island’s complex of natural, cultural, recreational and historic attractions. Thousands stream through our Wildlife Expo Hall, packed with information booths from local non-profits, government agencies, community organizations, businesses based on Mare Island, and local artisans with crafts for sale, PLUS a full weekend of live presentations.
You can go on historic tours, hike to the Mare Island hilltop, wetland walks, raptor viewing, enjoy environmental education, beautiful art & birding equipment, bid on items at our silent auction, activities for the kids, plus lots of local and regional venues are open for tours on Mare Island and beyond.
RAIN or SHINE!
*Virtually all attractions of the Festival are free except for two museum tours, a requested donation for tickets to the Re:sound sound art performances, and the kayak paddle on Sunday afternoon*
