The Indiana Dunes Birding Festival is an annual event that showcases the abundance of migratory birds in the Indiana Dunes. The four-day festival offers countless walks, hikes, talks, and programs. Visit the official website at for information on how to register. There is a fee to attend. The festival takes place in the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, the Indiana Dunes State Park, and throughout the region.

Birding in the Indiana Dunes is the best the state has to offer. With its rich biodiversity, varying habitats, and miles of Lake Michigan shoreline, the Indiana Dunes is a hotspot for migrant and resident birds. The Indiana Dunes Birding Festival is an event designed to celebrate the dunes area’s various birding habitats and bird watching opportunities to create a positive impact on the economic, conservation, and environmental education for visitors and residents to the Indiana Dunes region.
