Huron Fringe Birding Festival


Welcome to the Huron Fringe Birding Festival where we celebrate birds, birding and nature. The Festival is based out of beautiful MacGregor Point Provincial Park, where events explore the rich niches of the Park, and also venture throughout the ‘Huron Fringe’ of land along Lake Huron’s shore, up the bountiful Bruce Peninsula, and to many significant natural areas of Bruce and Grey Counties. 


The Huron Fringe Birding Festival offers an incredible number of events over two 4-day weekends in late May and early June! This time of year captures both the end of migration and the beginning of the nesting season, ensuring an abundance of birds. 

Whether your interest is strictly ‘for the birds’, or if you wish to delve into botany, photography, geology, cultural history and more, you will be sure to find interesting, informative and fun events.   We hope you will join us!


The Huron Fringe Birding Festival is brought to you by the Friends of MacGregor Point Park.

Indigenous Land Acknowledgement

For thousands of years, First Nations people have walked on this land. Their relationship with the land is at the centre of their lives.  Wherever you are, please take a moment to reflect on the traditional caretakers of the lands you call home.  

Here in Bruce County, Ontario, I want to acknowledge the traditional Territory of the Anishinabek Nation: The People of the Three Fires known as Ojibway, Odawa, and Pottawatomie Nations. And further give thanks to the Chippewas of Saugeen, and the Chippewas of Nawash, now known as the Saugeen Ojibway Nation, as the traditional keepers of this land. I would like to further acknowledge the more recent history and ongoing connections the Saugeen Metis have to this place. 

May we all, as Treaty People, live with respect on this land, and live in peace and friendship with all its diverse peoples.
