Blooms and Berries Farm Market has a great mid-summer event for you – The Butterfly Festival.
The Butterfly Festival at Blooms and Berries Farm Market will be here for 9 days – two weekends and the week in between: July 7 – 15, 2018.
Watch as they release hundreds of butterflies, all species that are local to our area. The butterflies will include Monarchs, Swallowtails, and Painted Ladies.
There will be two kinds of butterfly releases: the Grand Release and Kids Release.
- Be amazed by The Grand Release (happening on July 7 and July 14, 11am) which will include a massive release of 500 Monarchs, Swallowtails, and Painted Ladies. Your weekend admission ticket includes watching this butterfly release plus all the farm and festival activities.
- The Kids Release is an event in which the kids (and adults) can participate in the butterfly release. Each person participating in the Kids Release will be given a Painted Lady butterfly to release (Kids Release tickets required, see details here).
This is a family-friendly event. Admission to the Butterfly Festival includes the butterfly release events (weekends) plus the Farmyard Fun Play Area, farm animals, a sound garden, and much more. Weekend days also will include live acoustic music, butterfly and bee experts, food trucks (July 7&8 only), a Butterfly Princess, face painting, and more.
Be sure to have your camera ready because there will be lots of great photo opps. From the butterfly releases to the mile-long stretch of Butterfly Pollinator Plants, there will be lots of great spots for some family pics.
