Watershed Butterfly Festival

Watershed Butterfly Festival

Saturday, Aug 7, 2021 from 10:00am to 5:00pm


Join us our 21st annual Watershed Butterfly Festival – an in-person celebration of family fun to share the joys and wonders of nature. We are glad to be able to return to an in-person event and we look forward to seeing you.

The event will feature tours of the Kate Gorrie Butterfly House, and the Insect Zoo. Enjoy music and live entertainment by the Trenton Circus Squad and Eyes of the Wild (an exotic animal rescue show). Young children will delight in being a part of the famous “Butterfly and Bug Parade” led by Lady Monarch, Ms. Allison.

Adults and older children can learn about watersheds and the need to protect our rivers, lakes, and streams through educational hands-on exhibits. Food and drink will be available for sale and you can purchase butterfly wings, and other fun items at the Watershed Nature Shop. Dogs are not permitted at the event.

Proceeds from this event help sustain our work in environmental conservation, advocacy, science, and education. The Watershed Institute is a member-supported non-profit dedicated to protecting and restoring clean water and healthy environments in central New Jersey.

The festival will be by advanced registration only this year. Due to Covid-19, space at the Butterfly Festival will be limited to 250 persons per session and our activities will be held in a safe manner.

Register for one of three available two-hour sessions, 10:00 a.m.-12 noon, 12:30-2:30 p.m., and 3:00-5:00 p.m.

Everyone must pre-register and we won’t be able to accommodate walk-ins on the day of the festival. Price: $10 per person or $25 per carload (up to six people). Parking will be on-site at the Watershed Center.
