The Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival Is ready, set, go!

Festivals and Fun


Twelve months of planning, an extremely hard working volunteer committee, and a pristine environment (AND OK LOTS OF EAGLES) make this, the fastest growing eagle festival around.To begin your adventure, stop in at the Visitor Centre in Mission B.C. where you can get all the latest information (and directions to eagle viewing and activities) Located at 34033 Lougheed Hwy tel # 604-826-6914. Printed programs are available at most festival sites or you can download yours directly from the website at



There is so much to do during this two day, free family-friendly event that you will want to do a little planning as not to miss out on anything.

The first stop on the Festival route should be the indoor Exhibitors Hall at Leq’a:mel with wildlife displays, green businesses, environmental organizations and much more. In 2014 we welcome the addition of Raptor's Ranch to the site where you can get up close to a live raptor AND stay warm and dry.
there is another popular  "event" coming up in December that you can get a jump on by purchasing some festival souvenirs while you are exploring. And did we mention the delicious food??

Other "must see" participating sites include the Inch Creek Fish Hatchery & Kilby Historic Site the 1906 General Store, Restaurant and Museum.
The restaurant also has food

Thanks to the Fraser Valley Regional District's Gord Gadsen, Celestron's Ron Skogland (more about Celestron later) and Hancock Wildlife's (HWF) David Hancock, we have scopes set up for your viewing pleasure at Tapadera Estates, Eagle Point Community Park and Pretty Estates Resort. Harrison RV Resort has also generously opened its gates to welcome eagle viewers and has a HWF eagle video playing on site.
(if you are wondering about's at most sites too)

Fraser River Safari will of course be offering eagle viewing on the river from the prime vantage point of being IN the centre of the action.
(sorry,  no food sold on board)
