The Othello Sandhill Crane Festival celebrates the annual return of approximately 25,000 Sandhill cranes to Othello every March as they migrate north to their breeding grounds in Alaska. The Festival offers an incredible opportunity to view the cranes up-close, with tours led by local experts. The Festival also boasts other specialty tours of the flora, fauna and geology of the area, and many lectures, as well as children's' activities.


The Festival and cranes themselves have gained much popularity over the years and now has new and returning participants attending from across the country.  Pre-registration is suggested to reserve your seat as some tours fill up quickly. The 2022 Annual festival will be held March 25th, 26th and 27th, 2022.
