3rd Annual Colonial Beach Osprey Festival
Sponsored by Downtown Colonial Beach
(A Foundation Community Partner)

Spring 2021
Follow the Osprey Festival online


Join Downtown Colonial Beach (DCB) in celebrating Colonial Beach's signature bird, the osprey. Every Spring, ospreys return to Colonial Beach, which is within the Potomac/Chesapeake Watershed, the largest osprey breeding ground in the world.

Spring 2021 finds us still cautious of COVID-19, so, like last year, DCB invites everyone to its Virtual Osprey Festival.

CB Kids Christmas
Sponsored by CB Kids & BAMM
(Foundation Community Partners)

Saturday, December 11
Time TBD
Colonial Beach Community Center
(717 Marshall Ave, on the Point)


Every year the CB Kids Christmas program ensures that all kids in Colonial Beach experience the magic of Christmas, and provides gifts and a holiday meal to families in need. COVID drove the event outside in 2020 with a drive-by parade of cars to see decorations, and, from a distance, meet Santa and his elves. This year, we anticipate the more traditional kids' Christmas party of the pre-COVID years at the Community Center.
