Family friendly stage shows are to be announced at a later date.

All activities are completely free! No cost for admission or parking.

When you get hungry you can purchase food from one of the food trucks parked on site.

Come and interact with live butterflies in the Butterfly House.

If you have never attended this festival before, we encourage you to do so. This festival is one of a kind and is sure to take your breath away with the beautiful live release of over 1000 butterflies at 4pm on the Viceroy berm. The butterflies will hang around for a little while before beginning their migration to Mexico. All Media is welcome!
