Dear Birding Enthusiast,
I am writing to invite you to participate in the Bird Fair at Arcata’s 22nd annual Godwit Days Spring Migration Bird Festival April 19 – 25, 2017. Our program, considered #1 in northern California and #3 in the entire state – with around 100 field trips, lectures and many free community events, attracts attendees from Humboldt County, elsewhere in California and numerous other states. We expect about 400 registrants and an estimated 2,500 people to visit the vendor hall again this spring. This year we feature two speakers: Dr. Bridget Stutchbury and Mr. Noah Stryker.
The hall will be open to the public for the Bird Fair from 3 – 6:30 pm Friday, 10 am to 7 pm Saturday, and 10 am to 3 pm Sunday. Friday night sales during the reception are open to the general public and a great way to kick off the weekend. A Happy Hours Social will be held from 5-7 pm Saturday evening in the main hall. We invite all vendors to stay open during these extended hours (optional booth closure at 5 p.m.).
The fee of $110 ($55 for nonprofit organizations and government agencies) entitles you to approximately a 10’ x 10’ display area with a 6’ table, for Friday evening, Saturday, and Sunday. EARLY BIRD SPECIAL – THE FEE WILL BE $99 ($49.50 FOR NONPROFIT AND GOVT. ORGANIZATIONS IF FEE IS RECEIVED BY JANUARY 15, 2017!
