FIFTH ANNUAL BUTTERFLY FESTIVAL AND PLANT SALE IN THE WILLIAMSBURG BOTANICAL GARDEN
August 3 & 4, 2019
9 am – 4 pm
Bring the whole family to experience the Williamsburg Botanical Garden’s 5th Annual Butterfly Festival at the Williamsburg Botanical Gardens at Freedom Park on August 3th and 4th, from 9:00-5:00 both days.
This festival has several parts, but the main and most exciting focus will be two butterfly tents with hundreds of butterflies. These tents and butterflies will offer a wonderful opportunity for both children and adults to see hundreds of native butterflies close up. To educate and entertain the whole family, there will also be children’s crafts and educational programs for all ages of butterfly enthusiasts throughout the two days. Speakers’ topics will include raising Monarchs, butterflies and plants they need, and other interesting topics.
Funding for this program has been made possible through the generous support of the Green Spring Garden Club Inc. Admission is free but a $5 donation to the Williamsburg Botanical Garden at Freedom Park to help the garden grow would be appreciated.
