24th Annual Cranefest  
From Saturday, October 13, 2018
To Sunday, October 14, 2018
     

CraneFest is sponsored by Michigan Audubon Society in partnership with the Kiwanis Club of Battle Creek.  It's focus is to raise awareness and appreciation of our natural heritage and to support the ongoing educational and conservation efforts of Michigan Audubon and it’s Bernard W. Baker Bird Sanctuary. The festival is held at the Kiwanis Youth Area in Bellevue, overlooking Big Marsh Lake.

Events at this family-friendly festival run from noon to dusk and feature artists, vendors, food, and a variety of environmental and conservation-related information and educational activities. The main attraction, the “fly-in” of hundreds of Sandhill Cranes, typically begins slowly throughout the afternoon with the best viewing of cranes between 5 p.m. and dusk. The Michigan Bluebird Society will have a booth at this event from 12:00 PM until 6:00 PM each day.

Admission to the festival is free, but there is a minimal parking fee.
