An Evening with the Cranes

An Evening with the Cranes

You are invited to a magical summer evening at the International Crane Foundation’s headquarters in Baraboo, Wisconsin! Explore the exhibits and cranes while strolling our trails and sampling local gourmet food, craft beer, and wines.

Live music by favorite local bands, Persche-cussions and Say it ain’t Soul, mixed with crane calls will make it a truly unique evening. We hope you will join us!

Cranes don’t mind the rain, and neither do we! An Evening with the Cranes will be held rain or shine. In the event of rain, we will move to a welcoming tent next to our Whooping Crane exhibit.

Saturday, June 17, 2017 | 5:00 – 8:00 p.m.

Tickets $50 member and $75 non-member
