Huron Fringe Birding Festival
May 22 - May 31
Update — this event has been canceled.
With a tear in our eye the Festival Committee announces the cancellation of the 2020 Huron Fringe Birding Festival.
We will miss celebrating birds with you this year, but right now the focus must be on what is most important – your personal health and safety, and that of your family, your friends and your community.
In the meantime, nature’s spectacular spring show will go on across Ontario and beyond. Wherever you are, birds will come to you in their journey north. We wish you good birding in the safe sanctuary of your own backyard. Birding provides the perfect opportunity to celebrate spring migration even in these weeks of self-isolating and social distancing. We are so lucky to be birders, able to continue birding in some fashion throughout this seclusion.
We want to take this opportunity to acknowledge the Leaders and Presenters who were so committed to delivering their usual stellar events and presentations. We hope to see them all next year! We want to thank this year’s team of Event Coordinators who had stepped up to volunteer. We also want to acknowledge our sponsors whose generosity supports our Festival planning and preparations. We encourage you to support them in turn.
As of this notification there will certainly be no 2020 Festival as planned. But follow us on Facebook or check our website for updates from the Festival Committee.
And finally, as a show of our appreciation for our Festival registrants, we will be pulling a name from ‘the hat’ for one complimentary Festival weekend in 2021!

So, until we cross paths again, to all of you, from all of us on the Festival Committee – Be Safe, Stay Healthy, Keep Birding.
