About the Festival
Long before Lodi existed, Sandhill cranes descended into the rich Delta wetlands at the end of a long migratory journey. The abundance of crane habitat continues to nourish our agricultural roots, with water, soil, and climate that sustains the birds, enriches our lives, and benefits our local economy.
For 22 years, Lodi’s Sandhill Crane Festival has celebrated the return of the cranes. In partnership with the City of Lodi, the Festival continues this November, welcoming an ever-growing circle of friends to our community to share the wonder of the Sandhill Crane … and so much more.
Friday’s Opening Art show and Conservation dinner kicks off the three day celebration of the returning Sandhill Cranes to the California Delta. Free Saturday and Sunday Keynote speakers, all day exhibits, vendor hall, workshops, origami folding and live animal demonstrations provide many opportunities for people of all ages to learn more about California’s’ migrating visitors.
Birding Tours are available through out the weekend as well, requiring advance registration, beginning early September. Please see the SCF website as the festival approaches. Come join new friends and old alike, as we once again gather to learn about and appreciate the Sandhill Cranes, with conservation in mind.
