Eagle Festival

Eagle Festival Logo

The event is held on February 2 and 3, 2018 and is our 11th Annual Event!

With winter comes the return of the eagle to the Stillaguamish River. To celebrate these special winter residents, Arlington hosts an annual Eagle Festival. We welcome you to visit and enjoy this event, which includes guided tours, art and photography show, speakers, demonstrations, live music, wagon rides, and other fun activities.

The eagles return to feed on salmon that have come to spawn in the clean river gravel. The eagle also prey on the snow geese that are feeding in the agricultural fields in the floodplain.

This event is presented by:

  • City of Arlington
  • Stillaguamish Tribe
  • Arlington Arts Council
  • Funded in part by City of Arlington Hotel/Motel Tax Fund
