Pre-Purchase tickets are no longer available.

Admissions the day of the festival are $10 for adults, $5 for kids ages 4-12 and free for children 3 and under. Please note that there are only a limited number of available times for the Butterfly Tent and once we reach capacity, we will no longer allow entry to the tents (although you can still come to the festival to participate in our games, crafts, and other activities).   

This is a rain or shine event
No Pets Please

 If you are coming the day of the festival, it will be most convenient to park at North Atlanta Church of Christ (address is  5676 Roberts Dr, Dunwoody, GA 30338) and take the shuttle to the Nature Center. There is no parking at the Nature Center except for limited handicapped parking and shuttles will be running continuously from the parking area to the Nature Center.

When you arrive, check in at our admissions tent to either the pre-purchase area or purchase your tickets as you enter. Once you have entered continue down the drive to either our "Pre-Purchase Online" tent or our "Day of" purchase to pick up your timed wristband for entry to our butterfly tent. Purchases that are made on the day of the festival include entry to the butterfly tents on a fist come, first served basis until we reach capacity. IF you have pre-purchased your tickets already, you will be given a wristband for entry into the butterfly tent for the time that you requested.

Please allow at least 30 minutes to arrive prior to your timed entry. You are welcome to enjoy all of the great activities, games, and crafts in the park either before or after your timed entry.


 We hope to see you at the festival on Saturday!
