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.
