8th Annual Butterfly Festival
A fun & educational experience.
2015 IFEA Pinnacle Award Winner for Best Educational Program
2016 Kaleidoscope Award Winner for Best Children’s Program
Ideal for creative spirits & nature lovers!
Come and interact with live butterflies in their habitat in our Butterfly House or let the Master Gardeners take you on a tour of our beautiful Butterfly Garden. The only festival of its kind in the State of Kentucky, the Oak Grove Tourism Butterfly Festival is one of the most popular events in the region. 2016 will mark the eight year for the annual festival, and word has spread quickly about this fun, free, educational event. There is something for everyone to See, Do and LEARN! There are free, nature focused arts and crafts for the children to create and take home. And of course at the end of the festivals watch in wonder as over 1,000 butterflies are released into nature!
