A bird sanctuary and osprey mecca, Colonial Beach Virginia is the location for the town’s Third Annual Osprey Festival, celebrating its signature bird, other bird life and the area’s abundant natural resources. The festival is sponsored by Downtown Colonial Beach, Inc. to support revitalization of the historic downtown and commercial core of this slightly off-the-beaten track, gem of a Potomac River beachfront community.
