19th Annual High Plains Snow Goose

February 4 - February 7


This one-of-a-kind festival is celebrating 19 years and is sponsored by the Lamar Chamber of Commerce, Colorado Parks and Wildlife, Kiowa County Economic Development, and Canyons and Plains. Join avid birders and historians for this three-day festival that offers amazing field trips, engaging speakers, and informative programs.

Hundreds of bird species migrate through Southeastern Colorado each year, with the migration of tens of thousands of snow geese, the most breathtaking of all. Showcase your talents and highlight the beauty and culture of Southeast Colorado in the Photography Contest! Submissions will include beginner to expert images from adults and youth in the following categories: Wildlife, Landscape, Birds, and Historical, with a Committee’s Choice category (to be announced). Make plans now to spend a fantastic weekend in Southeast Colorado with birders from across the U.S. Keynote speakers to be announced.

Event registration is free, however, there is a charge ($50 or less) for field trips, with the price depending on the length and provision of meals. Numerous programs are also offered at no charge.
