The butterflies are returning to the Dunwoody Nature Center this August, albeit under much different circumstances than we have grown accustomed to over the last 26 years. 

While we normally host a one-day festival attracting thousands, 2020 will feature a more intimate experience, held over the course of a week, with limited capacity timed slots. Participants will have the opportunity to experience hundreds of butterflies up close and personal in a tent set up inside our North Woods Pavilion. 

All tickets must be purchased electronically in advance.

All social butterflies are welcome to attend our socially responsible Butterfly Experience!

Ticket Price:                      $10/person (3 years and younger are free)

Dates/Times:                     Saturday, August 15 thru Saturday, August 22

                                             9:00 AM to 6:00 PM daily (except 12:00 PM to 6:00 PM Sunday)

                                             Time slots last 25 minutes
