Cranes of the World Festival @ International Crane Foundation
Aug 4 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

Don’t miss our family-friendly Cranes of the World Festival on Saturday, August 4, with guided nature walks, arts and crafts, and special programs throughout the day!

This day of fun includes special guided tours, free with admission, at 10 a.m. and 1 and 3 p.m. Entertainer David Stokes will share live animals, songs, stories and fun at 10 and 11 a.m. and at 1 and 2 p.m. Fun activities from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. for families include craft tables hosted by the Baraboo Children’s Museum staff. Children also can engage in crane enrichment activities from 12 noon to 1 p.m.

Bagged lunches will be available for purchase from one of our international partners, Friends of Muraviovka Park, which guests can enjoy in one of our picnic areas.

While at our headquarters, don’t forget to tour our beautiful restored prairie and take home a memento from our crane-themed gift shop. Hope our mascot will make a guest appearance in the afternoon.

Come to meet all 15 species of cranes from around the world!

Special thanks to New Era Nursery of Hillsboro, Wisconsin for making this event possible!
