26th Rains County Eagle Fest

January 16


Rains County was recognized as the “Eagle Capital of Texas,” by the Texas Legislature in 1995 as part of an effort to protect and preserve the American Bald Eagle. Lake Fork, Lake Tawakoni, and the surrounding areas are nesting and feeding grounds for Bald Eagles and over 260 other bird species. The bus and barge tours to the lakes to see majestic Bald Eagles in their natural habitat are one of the main highlights of the festival. There will also be bird and animal exhibits and programs, animal encounters (including snakes), live entertainment and music, Aztec Dancers, vendors, food, educational speakers, and much more. Enjoy presentations from Last Chance Forever, the Blackland Prairie Raptor Center, Teaming With Wildlife, and others. Visit our website for more information.
