Pelican Festival

963 16th St
Grove, OK 74344


These once-scarce birds call Grand Lake home on their annual migration from early February - May and early September - November. It is an incredible sight that everyone should see at least once. The Grand Lake region celebrates the arrival of the White

Pelican with the Pelican Festival, October 7-10, 2021.

The White Pelican is one of our largest living birds, weighing between 10 & 17 pounds with a wingspan of 8 - 9 feet.

Adult white pelicans eat an average of four pounds of fish daily, mostly chad. They swim about in the shallow water, dipping their bills repeatedly for fish, letting excess water drain out the sides of the gular pouch.
