25th Annual Butterfly Festival - Dunwoody Nature Center this Saturday

The Dunwoody Nature Center's annual Butterfly Festival is Saturday, August 11th from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.

This year’s festival will take place on the 22-acre campus of the Nature Center and will again feature three butterfly tents that will enable guests to have a longer, less crowded experience surrounded by hundreds of livebutterflies in each tent. In addition to the three butterflytents, guests will be entertained all day with games, crafts, animal encounters and discovery stations throughout the park. Guests can participate in a nature scavenger hunt and find hidden treasures within Dunwoody Park; get their faces painted like a butterfly; and enjoy live music, a birds of prey show, and other entertainment all day long. On-site concessions will ensure guests stay well-fed, and the festival’s signature “larval lemonade,” along with other ice cold treats, will keep everyone happy and cool during the day.

Because of the popularity of the festival, it is highly recommended that visitors pre-purchase timed entry admission to the butterfly tents via the Nature Center’s website at Pre-purchasing timed entry tickets (available now) is the only way to guarantee a convenient time for butterfly tent entry, AND guests will save on their tickets in the process.

Pre-purchase admission is $8 for adults, $4 for children ages 4-12, and free to children ages 3 and under. Tickets the day of the festival are $10 for adults and $5 for children. Capacity for the butterfly tents is limited and once all of the entry times for the tents are allotted, admission will be for the festival grounds only.

Off-site shuttle service will be regularly available throughout the day to bring guests to the park. 

Please note: there is no parking at the Dunwoody Nature Center except for handicapped access. It is highly recommended that you take advantage of the complimentary parking and shuttle service running continuously during the day thanks to the volunteers at North Atlanta Church of Christ located at 5676 Roberts Drive. Parking is also available on a limited basis at nearby New Hope Church (located at 5477 Roberts Drive), and Austin Elementary School.

The staggered, timed entry to the butterfly tent will keep lines moving. As always, this year’s festival will also feature a special sneak preview and early admission for members only beginning at 9:00 a.m.
