Join us for a unique experience-
Haines, Alaska is known as the Valley of the Eagles for a good reason- the largest congregation of bald eagles in the United States happens right here in the Chilkat Valley each November! A late run of chum and Coho salmon attracts between two and four thousand bald eagles each year- the Alaska Bald Eagle Festival is your chance to come witness this marvel.
Join us and other bald eagle enthusiasts in a week-long celebration of our national bird! The American Bald Eagle Foundation hosts educational programs, music, games, a gala fundraiser, and much more.
The 2018 Bald Eagle Festival has won the Mindful Birding Award for our publication on ethical viewing of bald eagles. Please view the mindful birding guidelines here:
