Monarch Butterfly & Pollinator Festival

Oct 05 2024

The 9th Annual Monarch Butterfly & Pollinator Festival will be held on Saturday, October 5th, from 10 am to 3 pm at Brackenridge Park right next to the Zoo entrance!

Tag monarch butterflies and transform into a pollinator for the day as you immerse yourself in an educational playland to celebrate the monarch butterfly, pollinators, and the ecosystems that sustain both them and us. Over 30 educational partners will provide hands-on, nature-based experiences for children and adults to over 3,500 attendees. 

About the Festival

The mission of the Monarch Butterfly & Pollinator Festival is to celebrate and educate our community about the monarch butterfly, pollinators, and the ecosystems that sustain both them and us. The festival inspires children and “grown-up kids” of all ages to engage and connect with the natural world around them by immersing themselves in an educational playland that cultivates compassion and sparks behavioral change.

This community endeavor is held in partnership with Blooming with Birdie and supports the Mayor’s Monarch Pledge and the city of San Antonio as a Monarch Champion City.


FREE event, open to the public.

LOCATION: Pecan Grove, Cypress Pavilion, and Koehler Pavilion
