When: Sunday, September 25 starting from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Where: Nature Center of Cape May
This year’s festival takes place on September 25 at the Nature Center of Cape May, which is located on 1600 Delaware Ave. Fun fact: the monarch is poisonous to most predators, so the bright colors that make it so alluring to humans also serve as a warning to the butterfly’s adversaries.
The festival will begin at 10 a.m. with a butterfly-themed yoga session. “Mac’s Café” food truck will serve both breakfast and lunch. Visitors can enjoy a bake sale and can peruse local monarch-themed artwork. Kids, and kids at heart, can have their faces painted with patterns based on the monarch butterfly. Live music will be played by “Kearns and Donahue” from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. A festival highlight is the “monarch parade,” where guests dress up in monarch wings and other fun costumes.
There will also be a butterfly tagging demonstration~
