Sedona Hummingbird Festival

July 31 - August 2, 2015

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACE IN AMERICA TO SEE HUMMINGBIRDS! (SM)

 

The Sedona Hummingbird Festival is a 3 day long event of presentations by hummingbird experts from around the world.  This event is held annually at the Sedona Performing Arts Center in Sedona, Arizona the first weekend in August, when Sedona's hummingbird population is highest and most diverse - 5 or even 6 species instead of the usual 2 - and with typically five times the number of hummers as in early summer.  Arizona is well known as the top state for seeing many hummingbird species.  People travel great distances to see them!

For this year's festival, activities will include:

- Birds & Blooms Hummingbird Garden Tours

- Sunrise Breakfasts with the Hummingbirds - Huge numbers of hummingbirds are present for this activity.

- Gala Banquet Celebration - A delightful highlight of the 3-day event, with dinner and good times.

- Banding - Watch the Banding process all three days!

- Exhibits (free) - The Hummingbird Marketplace (exhibitors and vendors).

- Art Exhibit (free)

- Birding Trips - Birders may visit Page Springs Fish Hatchery and Oak Creek Canyon.  Trips led by Northern Arizona Audubon Society.

The Sedona Hummingbird Festival is a spectacular event which local residents and businesses are always encouraged to participate in.  Many include hummer-friendly flowers in their yard or keep feeders filled and fresh so that they may be rewarded by the sight of migrants.

The very first Sedona Hummingbird Festival took place August 3-5, 2012.  Attendees from 21 states and 3 foreign countries relished the opportunity to see and hear the presenters as they shared their particular niche of hummingbird knowledge.  Read about the first Sedona Hummingbird Festival in this excerpt from The Hummingbird Connection, the official member magazine of the Hummingbird Society. 

Ticket sales began April 1, 2015 and will end before the festival begins.  For more information, visit the Hummingbird Society website.
