Purchase Tickets

 Advance tickets are no longer available, but tickets are still available on the day of the festival.

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 pre-purchasing tickets is the only way to guarantee entrée to the butterfly tents at a time that is convenient for you. 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). AND, by purchasing your tickets in advance, you'll save money in the process - pre-purchase tickets are only $8 for adults and $4 for kids. 

This is a rain or shine event
No Pets Please

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, your first stop will be our admissions tent to either pick up your pre-purchase tickets and timed wristband or purchase your tickets the day of as you enter. If you have not pre-purchased your tickets, proceed to our wristband tent to pick up your timed entry wristband to the butterfly tents. 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.


Pre-purchase tickets (only available through Sunday, August 14th) will be confirmed at admissions the day of the festival. Simply walk to our admissions tent to pick up your butterfly tent entry wristbands. 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'll see you at the festival!
