STEP 1:
To attend the 2016 event, participants will first purchase a $20 Festival Registration. This grants access to festival events tickets, by using the same registration email. The option to add family members at $5 each is also available during event signup- families with more than 5 members should purchase an additional registration fee.

STEP 2:
Select all the events you’d like to attend. Then you will check out. For each event ticket order, a $2.00 processing fee will be added to each order (not each ticket), to cover credit card fees.

These fees help to cover general operation and ticketing expenses of the Festival, and allow us to continue to offer events and activities at no and low costs.  Registration also allows you to reserve seat, to both “free” and fee-based events, when there is has a limit on participants.

Participants will be asked to show their 2017 Festival Badge at each event. You can pick up your finalized tickets and Festival badge at Islands & Ocean Visitor Center, Shorebird Festival headquarters.

Thank you for support in helping the Festival remain a self-sustainable event, year after year.
