The annual Butterfly Festival in late summer is a family favorite in Dunwoody, GA. During the Butterfly Festival, two enormous tents are set up at the Dunwoody Nature Center and filled with gorgeous free-roaming butterflies for families to venture inside and explore, first receiving instructions to ensure the safety of the friendly insects. The festival also includes a Birds of Prey show, a showcase of reptiles and other live animal encounters. Educational booths, arts and craft vendors and music complete the festival for adults and children to enjoy. Because Dunwoody’s annual Butterfly Festival is a popular event, it’s recommended you order your tickets online beforehand to avoid lines on the day of the event. Refreshing drinks, delicious lunches and frozen treats are available throughout the festival grounds during this easy-to-find event, and on-site parking is free.
