Alaska Bald Eagle Festival
November 9, 2022 – November 12, 2022
Join us this November to experience the largest gathering of Bald Eagles in the country! Over 3,000 bald eagles gather along a four-mile stretch of the Chilkat River in the 48,000-acre Alaska Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve, located a few miles north of Haines. The annual festival coincides with the peak concentration of eagles, which return to the Chilkat Valley each fall to feed on a late salmon run.
This spectacular wildlife phenomenon is a rare opportunity to stand along an open stretch of wild Alaskan water and be visibly surrounded by countless bald eagles.
Festival activities include:
American Bald Eagle Foundation Museum
Live Bird Presentations
Eagle viewing in the Preserve
Local Artist Fair
