Father’s Day is for the birds

JACKSON, WY – Over the past nine years, Father’s Day celebrations have become synonymous with food, fun, and feathers.

Join Teton Raptor Center for the 9th annual RaptorFest Sunday, June 16 from 3-6 p.m. RaptorFest celebrates Father’s Day by teaching dads and their kids about birds of prey!

This unique community event will feature live birds of prey all afternoon. There will be loads of engaging activities for kids of all ages. “The RaptorFest Band” (Laurie Boss, Hank Phibbs, and John Carney), along with the Teton Fiddlers will provide live music during RaptorFest and at 6 p.m. the Futurebirds will kick off JacksonHoleLive!’s first concert, followed by the North Mississippi Allstars.

“RaptorFest is a unique celebration for visitors and locals alike to have up-close encounters with birds of prey, to support local conservation initiatives, and to have a ton of fun learning about raptors. We’re delighted to partner with JacksonHoleLive! to bring together a memorable experience for the whole family to kick off the summer season.” said Amy McCarthy, Executive Director.
