About the Sedona Hummingbird Festival
The Festival, headquartered at the Sedona Performing Arts Center, is sponsored by the International Hummingbird Society, a Sedona-based nonprofit education and conservation organization formed in 1996. Aimed at residents and visitors alike, the purpose of the festival is to teach about hummingbirds and work to protect the endangered species.
Attendees come to learn about all things hummingbird. At the Performing Arts Center, there will be three days of presentations by world hummingbird experts on a variety of topics: how they are cared for in aviaries, how to attract them, how to garden for them, and efforts to protect endangered hummingbirds (tickets required).
Experience hummingbirds first hand, by visiting several identified “hummingbird hotspots” with large numbers of hummers (free), by watching individual birds be “banded” with unique identifying anklets for scientific research (free), and by having an early breakfast at a hotspot, watching hummingbirds have their breakfast (ticketed, advance reservations needed).
If you are interested in attending this festival we highly suggest purchasing your tickets now. Sellouts are expected. Tickets may be purchased only online. Click here to purchase tickets. For more information please visit the Sedona Hummingbird Festival.
