Now in it's 35th year this 3 day festival celebrating Sandhill
Cranes includes Keynote Speakers, a photography workshop and a longstanding craft and nature fair.
Festival-goers can find treasures handcrafted by local artisans,
from delicately-painted wood carvings of birds to handmade
jewelry, quilts, and wildlife art.
The New Mexico raptor rehabilitator Hawks Aloft brings its live
hawks, owls, and falcons for folks wanting to experience up
close these birds typically only seen from afar.
This event is a collaborative effort between The Friends of the
San Luis Valley National Wildlife Refuges (slvrefuges.org), The
Monte Vista Chamber of Commerce, and the City of Monte Vista.
