In addition, we have new games and opportunities for you to enjoy including a fun and rambunctious evening on Friday night where you can win prizes over $1000 in value at the MEGA RAFFLE EXTRAVAGANZA event. It’s a raffle like none you’ve ever experienced.
The Houston Budgerigar is hosting a special exhibition of our theme bird for 2018, the Budgie! This is a first for Parrot Festival and we hope that you will enjoy seeing what they have to offer.
No Parrot Festival would be complete without the wonderful selection of products that our exceptional vendors bring to the “The Mart at Parrot Festival” which goes on throughout the day on Saturday and Sunday. You are sure to find just the right thing to keep your Parrots healthy, happy, and engaged.
And above all, don’t miss the opportunity to be with other bird fans. Forge new friendships and revel in old ones. It’s always a party at Parrot Festival.
