Butterfly Festival

2017 Butterfly Festival
Saturday, August 12 | 10AM-4PM


We are pleased to invite you to join us at the 17th Annual Butterfly Festival. It will be held at the Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed Association, August 12th, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., on our 930-acre Watershed Reserve in Hopewell Township, NJ.

We are now accepting applications from vendors, exhibitors and performers to compliment our commitment to our community and environmental education. The Butterfly Festival is our largest annual educational event. It is an enlightening day focusing on the importance of maintaining the delicate balance between humans and the natural world.

This family-oriented day has grown to be a major regional event, attracting more than 3,000 visitors. The day will feature new and exciting ways in which the Watershed is fulfilling its mission to protect the environment and clean water. We invite you to join us in modeling ways to participate in the process of keeping our earth green and provide examples of planet-friendly choices to help support greener-living. We will feature local crafts and products and feature exhibitors and contributors with many types of art, crafts, music, photography, sculpture, etc.

There will be family oriented activities and workshops, art and entertainment. If you feel your services or products would help promote our mission and be of interest to those attending, please submit the application to attend. We reserve the right to limit types or vendors or not include those that do not support our mission.

We request that all participants help promote the Butterfly Festival through their own businesses, Facebook and other social media.

If you are interested in being a sponsor, vendor, or exhibitor, contact Suzanne or Tara at (609) 737-3735 ext. 28 or smoran@thewatershed.org
