24th Annual Butterfly Festival

August 3, 2024

Join us at our 24th annual Watershed Butterfly Festival – an in-person celebration of family fun to share the joys and wonders of nature. The event will feature tours of the Kate Gorrie Butterfly House and the Insect Zoo. Enjoy music and live entertainment throughout the day, including animal shows featuring Eyes of the Wild. Young children will delight in being a part of the famous “Butterfly and Bug Parade” led by Lady Monarch, Ms. Allison. Adults and older children can learn about watersheds and the need to protect our rivers, lakes, and streams through educational hands-on exhibits. Food and drink will be available for sale, including a water truck provided by New Jersey American Water, and you can purchase butterfly wings and other fun items at the Watershed Gift Shop.
