Celebration of Flight

Join HawkWatch International on September 28th - October 1st, 2023, at the Celebration of Flight at the Corpus Christi HawkWatch.

This festival is a celebration of raptor migration of the Corpus Christi HawkWatch at Hazel Bazemore County Park. This is a family-friendly event with free activities in the park that coincide with peak Broad-winged Hawk migration in September. Thanks to our partners Swarovski OptikAudubon Outdoor Club of Corpus Christi, and the many volunteers who make this festival possible.

Hawk migration is a true spectacle of the natural world and Corpus Christi HawkWatch has the largest and most diverse in the country. All events will be held at Hazel Bazemore County Park and are open to the public free of charge. Volunteers will be on hand to help identify hawks for visitors. 

Vendors, raptor merchandise, and food trucks will be present throughout the festival.


Everyday: HawkWatching at the platform starting at 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM

Directions to Hazel Bazemore County Park

Take FM624 west from SH77 for about 1 mile. Take a right onto County Road 69 at the stop light (look for the park sign), which takes you to the park. Go in the park entrance, make a left as soon as you get across the speed bump, and follow the winding road to the crest of the hill (past the restrooms, a covered picnic pavilion and around the next bend).
