Sandhill Crane Festival
Long before Lodi existed, Sandhill Cranes descended into the rich delta wetlands at the end of a long migratory journey, some from nesting grounds as far away as Siberia. These magnificent birds darkened the skies over winter marshes as they greeted California’s earliest explorers. In awe-inspiring numbers and with a prehistoric call, stately gait, and elegant choreography, the Sandhill Crane continues to attract and inspire visitors.
Thousands of visitors go to Lodi area wildlife refuges and farmlands each year to experience firsthand one of nature’s spectacles. The abundance of crane habitat nourishes our agricultural roots with water, soil, and climate that sustains the birds, enriches our lives, and benefits our local economy.
For 24 years, Lodi’s Sandhill Crane Festival has celebrated the return of cranes. In partnership with the City of Lodi, the Festival continues this November, welcoming an ever-growing circle of friends to our community to share the wonder of the Sandhill Crane … and so much more.
