Monarch Fest 2020
March 21 @ 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Monarch Fest is an annual event that celebrates the magnificent migration of monarch butterflies through South Texas this time of year. Monarch Fest 2020 boasts live art, sustainable fashion and more.
Join Lady Monarch as a walking art piece. Express yourself by dressing as your favorite pollinator (bird, bat, bee, bug, or butterfly) for a chance to win prizes and an invitation to join the Mayor’s Bug Parade.
Also new this year, explore sustainable fashion at the Upcycled Fashion Show. The event features unique, handmade pieces. The process of upcycling fashion involves finding creative ways to reuse textiles, resulting in one-of-a-kind items. Shop or get ideas for your own wardrobe rehash.
Monarch Fest is a family-friendly event featuring cooking demonstrations, scout badge activities and collaborative art murals. The day also includes special guest speakers, garden tours, arts and craft activities, and live music. More offerings are dance performances, a farmers market, native plants for sale, a caterpillar tot corner and pollinator art installations.
Tickets are $5, children 2 years of age and younger are free.
