The Skagit Eagle Festival is a month-long celebration during eagle-watching season in eastern Skagit County. Activities take place in Concrete, Rockport and Marblemount every full weekend in January.
The festival features a variety of free tours, walks, and educational programs where you’ll learn not only about these majestic birds, but also about a variety of wildlife and the beautiful areas along the Skagit River where they live or return each year.
Special presentations will teach you about a year in the life of an eagle, how to photograph wildlife and scenery, and much more. You and your family will have the opportunity to enjoy arts and crafts, wine tasting, river rafting, music, dance and a wide variety of other outdoor and indoor activities. Bring your camera, dress for unpredictable winter weather, and come join us for one of the most uplifting and entertaining events of the year!
