After serious consideration, the Morro Bay Winter Bird Festival Board of Directors has voted to cancel the Winter Bird Festival for 2021. This was an especially difficult decision as it is our 25th anniversary. However, in light of the continued impacts of the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic, cancelling the festival seemed the wisest decision at this time. We have made this decision with full support from our parent organization, the Morro Coast Audubon Society.

We are looking forward to January 14 - 17, 2022, when we will celebrate our 25th festival with exciting new events and presenters. Follow us on Facebook and other social media at We’ll keep you informed of updates, changes and new events as they occur.

Thank you for your continued support of the Morro Bay Winter Bird Festival. We look forward to seeing you in 2022!
