Diamondhead Hummingbird Festival in Diamondhead, MS
September 14, 2019
The Hummingbird Festival in Diamondhead, MS has grown and continues to grow each year with new vendors, a variety of speakers and presentations.
As a hummingbird event, we teach our visitors about the habitat, migration patterns, feeding needs, and natural friends and enemies of these little birds. But it’s not all learning. We’ll have live music, food, door prizes, lots of vendors, and the ability to witness the banding of multiple birds and observe dozens of hummingbirds as they go about their business! With each banding, a participant is allowed to hold the subject bird briefly before it is given its freedom again, and those who don’t actually hold a hummingbird are allowed to touch it to feel its heart beat. Also with vendors, many of whom have hummingbird-related products available for purchase, participants are able to find items to take home with them and share about their experiences with family and friends. Food vendors are also on site to help make the day both enjoyable and comfortable for all.
This annual event not only serves to provide family-friendly fun for all, it also serves to support vital programs for orphans and underprivileged children world-wide. As always, be sure to check directly with the producer of the event to confirm dates, times, and location.
