Bird watching, music, national heritage, good times for kids, and seasonal celebrations all have their place in Mission's lineup of festivals and events throughout the year.
Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival
The Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival is an annual two-day event held in November. The festival is highlighted by North America's third-biggest clustering of bald eagles, which gather at the height of the salmon spawning run on the Fraser River and its tributaries.
Watch as many as 1,200 bald eagles in the Harrison-Chehalis delta from viewing stations, enjoy jet boat eco-river tours with Fraser River Safari or nature walks, and attend lectures and presentations by top naturalists. Apart from certain special events, the Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival is free.
