Othello Sandhill Crane Festival

March 22, 2024 March 24, 2024

For more than two decades we have celebrated the annual return of nearly 35,000 Sandhill Cranes to Othello, Washington, every March as they migrate north to their breeding grounds in Alaska. The festival offers an incredible opportunity to view the cranes up-close, with tours led by local experts. The festival also boasts other specialty tours of the flora, fauna, and geology of the area, and many lectures, as well as children’s activities. The festival has grown over the years with returning participants attending from across the country.

Registration at The Hotel Art Gallery, 33 Larch Street, Othello, Washington 99344 (10 to 5 pm, Tuesday to Saturday). Friday night activities to be announced, and Saturday and Sunday activities at the McFarland Middle School, 790 S 10th Ave #1699, Othello, WA 99344, and the Othello Church of the Nazarene, 835 S. 10th Avenue, Othello, WA 99344.
