20th Annual High Plains Snow Goose Festival

February 2, 2023 - February 5, 2023


This one-of-a-kind festival brings together avid birders and historians for a three-day adventure of nature. Join in for amazing field trips, engaging speakers, and educational programs. Also, check out the offers at the Trade Show/Craft Fair and score great things at the silent auction.

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 fee for field trips, with the price depending on the length and provision of meals. Numerous programs are also offered at no charge.
