The Michiana Elite Bird Fair 2014 was a huge success!  We’d like to thank all of our wonderful sponsors, all of the awesome vendors, our fantastic speakers, Bethel College, our dedicated volunteers, and all of the supportive people who attended.  Not only did people have a chance to see and buy pet birds and to stock up on needed bird products, but also they helped our Potawatomi Zoo and endangered bird species.  Be sure to check our pictures from the Michiana Elite Bird Fair 2014.

  1. Bring the whole family out to this bird fair. It is one of the FINEST that you can attend!!!! Even if you have a feathered companion at home…. the beautiful birds are are a treat to look at.

  2. Have been so excited ever since receiving your notice card in the mail. I have been
    waiting an entire year for this season. This is my highlight of the year.
    This year I am looking for and wanting to purchase a pair (maybe 2-they’re small)
    of Swee Waxbills. They are so cute and tiny. Do you know if anyone will be
    offering them? Thank you so much and I look forward to seeing everyone again.

  3. Hello, If you are looking to add something educational and entertaining to your 2013 bird fair, please check my website. I speak on bird behaviors from the birds point of view. I perform at many pet expos, bird fairs and lecture at bird club meetings. I was the key speaker at Parrot Palooza this year.
    I am presently booking for the Spring and Summer 2013. Thank you for your consideration. John Lege
