Registration will open on Jan 2, 2019.  Go HERE for more information.

What Makes the Monte Vista Crane Festival Unique? You can enjoy thousands of cranes, ducks, and geese flying against a backdrop of mountain scenery. Raptors will adorn the power poles and owls will be sitting with their young.

Festival planning is a collaborative effort between The Friends of the San Luis Valley National Wildlife Refuges (slvrefuges.org), The Monte Vista Chamber of Commerce, and the City of Monte Vista and is operated as a non-profit under the Friends’ 501(c)(3) non-profit status. A visit to the Monte Vista Crane Festival is an opportunity to see an amazing natural spectacle as well as experience a unique local community.
