The Monte Vista Crane Festival isn’t all about Sandhill Cranes. Sure, the long-legged birds are a big tourist draw. But people also love the festival’s longstanding craft and nature fair.

Festival-goers can find treasures handcrafted by local artisans, from delicately-painted wood carvings of birds to handmade jewelry, quilts, and wildlife art. (70 vendors in 2017)

Homemade fudge and other foods are for sale.

The New Mexico raptor rehabilitator Hawks Aloft displays live hawks, owls, and falcons for folks wanting an up-close experience these majestic birds typically only seen from afar.

There will be local representatives from agencies such as Bureau of Land Management, Colorado Parks and Wildlife, and U.S. Forest Service. Talk to them to learn about the Valley’s wildlife and public lands from local experts.
