Based in Cape Charles, Virginia, the Eastern Shore Birding and Wildlife Festival provides an incredible opportunity to catch sightings of species you may have never seen before. As one of the most important migration stop-overs on the East Coast, millions of songbirds and butterflies and thousands of raptors will converge here on their long journey south. With the natural splendor provided by the Eastern Shore of Virginia National Wildlife Refuge and Kiptopeke State Park, this is a migration celebration you'll always remember. We offer a variety of bird and wildlife viewing field trips, with over 100 guided hikes, boat trips, kayak trips and stationary hawk watch. Enjoy free family and children activities all day Saturday, October 8, at the Kiptopeke State Park. The festival grounds on the Eastern Shore of Virginia is only 40 minutes from Norfolk and Virginia Beach and just over four hours from Washington, DC and Philadelphia.
