As the sandhill cranes migrate through the Yampa Valley, we celebrate with our annual festival

The 12th annual Yampa Valley Crane Festival takes place on its traditional end-of-summer weekend, and Bud Werner Library is festival HQ once again. Join us for expert peakers, films, live raptors, bird walks, sketch-a-bird, crane storytimes, crane yard art, flying dancers and more!

About the Yampa Valley Crane Festival

The Greater Sandhill Crane is an iconic species of the Yampa Valley. Returning in the spring, cranes nest and raise their young in wetland areas throughout the valley. In late summer and early fall, hundreds of cranes from the Rocky Mountain flock join the local birds to rest and feed before continuing their journey south.
