Makanda Vulture Fest will be held Saturday, October 17, 2015 from 11 am to 7 pm and Sunday, October 18, 2015 from 11 am to 6 pm in Downtown Makanda. This event ends at the scheduled time and camping, alcoholic beverages, and fires or fireworks are strictly prohibited.

Black vultures and turkey vultures fly and swoop in the skies surrounding Makanda each fall.
