Dunwoody Nature Center is pleased to announce the return of everyone’s favorite day in Dunwoody Park – the Butterfly Festival makes its return this year on Saturday, August 17th!
This event offers an exciting opportunity for visitors to experience a unique encounter with some of Nature’s most delicate and beautiful creatures in interactive walk-through exhibits.
Make your plans to come out for an up close and personal experience with hundreds of butterflies, caterpillars, and beautiful plant life. Experts will be on-hand to teach about their life cycles, answer your questions and even give you the opportunity to feed the butterflies from your hand.
Because of the popularity of last year’s festival, this year’s event will feature TWICE as many butterflies with TWO enormous tents – each filled with hundreds of live butterflies. There will also be a live butterfly release during the day’s festivities!
In addition to the main attraction, there will be a birds of prey show, live animal encounters, games, crafts, activities and music throughout the day – ticket price is all-inclusive and provides access to all that the festival and the Park has to offer.
Early member preview begins at 9:00 with general admission at 10:00.
Admission the day of the festival is $10 for adults, $5 for kids ages 4-12 and free for children 3 and under. If you’d like to avoid long lines and choose a time frame that is best suited for you, you can pre-purchase tickets. AND, you’ll save money in the process – pre-purchase tickets are only $8 for adults and $4 for kids. Get your reserved entry time with pre-purchased tickets HERE.
