Celebrating 21 years of 

Parrot Festival

January 24-26, 2020

Join us again, this year, for a very special Parrot Festival as we celebrate our 21st year!  Parrot Festival is an annual gathering of parrot enthusiasts for education and celebration.  It is the major Education Conference and Fundraiser for the organization and the proceeds sustain us through out the year in our educational and parrot rehoming endeavors.  Each year we strive to bring you the best and most interesting speakers and programs all while providing a fun, warm, and exciting experience.


You must log in during registration to get your membership discount. If you need assistance don't hesitate to contact Paula Nowak, (949) 212 - 3148.

This Year:

Parrots 101 - A series of classes for beginning parrot owners and those that are thinking of getting a parrot.  This class is open to the public for a fee and is free to conference attendees.

Mega Raffle Extravaganza - A fun way to win prizes and raise money for NPRPF at the Friday evening Party in Parrot-dise. Anyone can attend the Party in Parrot-dise, but only holders of Mega Raffle Tickets can participate in the drawings. This is a reverse raffle where people are eliminated as their number is called.  A limited number of 200 tickets are available.  You can purchase them when you register.  If the tickets are sold out you will have an opportunity to buy one of the remaining tickets at the end of the Raffle from the ticket holders.

Parrot Toy University - Join Jan Marquardt of BusyBeaks and Nancy Marbach of Boomzookee as they lead a class focused on making a variety of bird toys out of readily available components. A variety of toy making techniques will be covered. (This is a special lunch and learn session that requires additional registration and has limited availability).
