Port Aransas Whooping Crane Festival

February 22, 2024 February 25, 2024

The Coastal Bend is the only spot in the United States where the endangered Whooping Crane can be viewed at close range, and the Port Aransas Tourism Bureau & Chamber of Commerce celebrates this astonishing natural wonder with an annual festival honoring these grand birds.

In addition to the Whooping Crane, an awesome array of wintering migratory birds flock into the wetlands and onto the Texas shorelines of Mustang Island in and around Port Aransas. Birding tours by land and sea are highlights during the festival. Visitors of all ages will enjoy the many festivities during the celebration. Free trade show featuring numerous unique vendors. A wide selection of optics, paintings, photography, and one-of-a-kind gift items for the nature lover in all of us will be featured. Other activities include world-renowned speakers, photography workshops, and a variety of field trips.
