The Hummingbird Marketplace (exhibitors & artist), held in the lobby of the Sedona Performing Arts Center, with easy access to shopping opportunities for "everything hummingbird."

No admission fee!

Banding Demonstration: A tiny numbered band is attached to a hummingbird's leg so that its movements can be scientifically followed! You will never forget seeing tiny hummingbirds up close--and maybe even being chosen to release one after it is banded.

We will email the location and directions to the banding sites.

NOTE: The banding locations are handicapped (wheelchair and walker) accessible at Saturday and Sunday locations, only. Friday location is NOT handicapped accessible. ALL BANDING SITES HAVE NO RESTROOM ACCESSIBILITY, SO PLAN ACCORDINGLY!   

 Banding Advance Ticket: $30    Banding at the Door Ticket: $35

Hummingbird Garden Tours:  Experience the magic of hummingbirds in the beautiful red rock setting of Sedona! Just a note, the hummingbirds are on their own schedule, and if they don't happen to be present in a particular garden when you are, you will still have a chance to see what the gardens have to offer in terms of hummingbird-attracting plants in a high desert environment.

They can be purchased for either Saturday or Sunday permitting a self-guided garden visit at your own schedule. This allows you to visit the gardens and spend as much time as desired but still see lectures on the opposite day. You will take your PayPal receipt and bring it to SPAC location where you will get a wristband and garden tour map to enjoy the gardens.  You may pick them up anytime Fri/Sat/Sun after 8am. 

NOTE: The map of the gardens will detail which gardens are handicapped accessible. ALL GARDEN SITES HAVE NO RESTROOM ACCESSIBILITY, SO PLAN ACCORDINGLY!  

 Garden Advance Ticket: $30    Garden at the Door Ticket: $35

Early Morning Birding Trips:  WE HAVE 4 NEW BIRDING TRIPS ADDED TO THIS YEAR'S FESTIVAL! Birders have the opportunity to visit different habitats; tickets are reasonably priced, but reservations are required because of extremely limited capacity. Trips are led by the Northern Arizona Audubon Society. Please arrive early, bring your binoculars, and water.  Be prepared to car pool as parking is limited at the birding sites. They leave the SPAC promptly at 6:30 AM. 

There are only 12 tickets available per location each day. Purchase in advance as they sell out quickly!

  Birding Advance Ticket: $30        Birding at the Door Ticket: $35

NOTE: The birding tours are NOT handicapped accessible. There is NO restroom availability, PLAN ACCORDINGLY!
