We are excited to announce Idlewild Butterfly Farm's third annual FLUTTER FEST — our biggest butterfly celebration yet, hosted by and in partnership with Louisville Zoo.

Flutter Fest is a four-hour celebration of our Kentucky native butterflies, and coincides with the yearly great migration of the monarchs. Join us as we tag and release one thousand of these amazing butterflies — the data from the tagging is critical for scientists who monitor the annual migrations. Tagging is a great opportunity to get a hands-on experience with these delicate creatures — staff from Idlewild Butterfly Farm and Louisville Zoo will be on hand to guide you through the process.

Along with butterfly tagging, Flutter Fest features a suite of family-friendly activities, including craft and education stations, a pollinator parade for kids in costume, a meet-and-greet photo opportunity with The Very Hungry Caterpillar, live monarch chrysalis and metamorphosis kits from Idlewild Butterfly Farm, fanciful butterfly merchandise and apparel, and a whole lot more butterfly-themed fun.

All activities are free with a general Zoo admission.
