The Snow Goose Festival is Back

Celebrate the spring migration with the return of the Snow Goose Festival to Tofield, Alberta on April 22 and 23. 2023. There are no other experiences like this, as thousands of snow geese, swans, shorebirds, cranes and songbirds pass through the Beaverhill Lake region on their return to their nesting grounds in Alberta and northern Canada from as far away as the southern United States and Mexico.

Bus tours and nature hikes depart from the Tofield Arena, which is also where kids activities, speaker sessions and a trade show will take place. All of this is followed by a Saturday night banquet and silent auction. All ages are welcome!

This special event provides nature enthusiasts, bird watchers and anyone curious about the spectacle of migration with an opportunity to view the many species of birds that stop over in the Beaverhill Lake region. With increased lake water levels, great flocks of snow geese are expected this year.
