Whooping Crane Festival 2024

Get ready for Port A’s annual weekend Whoop-a-palooza!

Each year since 1996, the Whooping Crane Festival has celebrated the yearly return of the cranes to their wintering habitat at the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge. The Texas Coastal Bend is the only place where you can see the world’s last naturally occurring population of Whooping Cranes.

The four-day event brings an array of opportunities to get out in nature, from boat trips and nature tours to sessions with experts, with social events mixed in. There’s also art, photography, theatre, and nationally renowned speakers.

The Civic Center and Trade Show act as the festival’s ground zero as Port Aransas opens up for all to share in her bounty. The Whooping Crane Festival is a great way to immerse in the area and to celebrate the annual return of guests, both winged and not!
