17th Annual Birdfest and Bluegrass Festival

hey! sharing is caring :)

Enjoy a weekend of nature, Chinookan culture, movies, music, shopping, hands on activities and more at the 17th Annual Birdfest and Bluegrass Festival taking place in and around the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge on Saturday and Sunday, October 1-2, 2016.

The Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge is a haven for birds that make this their winter home. Birdfest is a celebration of the fall migration and an opportunity to experience wildlife of the region and local history firsthand, all set against the backdrop of Ridgefield’s small-town charm.

Special offerings on both days include guided kayak and big canoe tours, Audubon guided birdwalks, Kiwa Trail tour and the spectacular sandhill crane tours at dawn and dusk. Food booths will also be open throughout the weekend. Learn how to weave with invasive species, repurpose an old t-shirt into a cool new style, learn to watercolor, and so much more.

Visitors can get an early start on Christmas shopping. An expanded birders’ marketplace will offer great buys on garden items, pottery, art, photography, birdhouses, clothes, books and other items.

Most events are free, and there really is too much to list here, so visit Friends of the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge Birdfest and Bluegrass Festival for a complete schedule of events and locations.
