Come and interact with live butterflies in their habitat in our Butterfly House or let the Master Gardeners take you on a tour of our beautiful Butterfly Garden.

Watch our family friendly stage shows, take a ride on the train, or get your face painted. Take a spin on the human gyroscope ride, or take pictures like Hollywood star at our Golden-Globe styled step & repeat banner.

This year’s shows are sure to thrill audience members of all ages! Each show will go on 3 times throughout the day.

The first is Comic Ventriloquist Steve Brogan. He has been featured on PBS, Good Morning America, and the Today Show among many others. He has rave reviews and often works festivals, churches and universities due to the clean, family friendly nature of his shows.

The second show is The Canine Stars Stunt Dog Show. You may remember 2017 America’s Got Talent 5th Place finalists, Sara & Hero. This is just one of the very talented duo’s that come from the Canine Stars! They also had 2 finalists (Fetch-it & Bootzilla) and a 2nd place winner (Power) in the IDC Championships and quite a few other victories!

Make sure to stick around to the very end so you can view our live butterfly release. So many people have stared in wonder as live butterflies are released and begin their long migration journey to the mountains of Mexico for overwintering.

The Oak Grove Tourism Butterfly Festival is one of the most popular events in the region. 2019 will mark the eleventh year for the annual festival, and word has spread quickly about this fun, free, educational event.

There is something for everyone to See, Do and LEARN! There are free, nature focused arts and crafts for the children to create and take home.
Head out to 101 Walter Garrett Lane and join in all the free family fun at the 11th annual Oak Grove Tourism Butterfly Festival!
