The 2021 Arlington-Stillaguamish Eagle Festival will be different due to restrictions on event gatherings. Expect activities that will be on-your-own or virtual.
With winter comes the return of the eagle to the Stillaguamish River. 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. To celebrate these special winter residents, Arlington hosts an annual Eagle Festival, which includes guided tours, art and photography show, speakers, demonstrations, live music, wagon rides, and other fun activities. Free events include guided preserve tour, nature walk, rock & gem display, nature exhibits, crafts, and kids’ activities. Food vendors, bake sale, and soup sale.
