Three-Day Festival Takes Place August 19-22 at Dunwoody Nature Center
Discover Dunwoody, the destination marketing organization (DMO) representing one of Atlanta’s most thriving suburbs rich with unique attractions and community events, today announced the return of its beloved Butterfly Experience. Taking place August 19-22 at the Dunwoody Nature Center, this year’s festivities will include several days of family-friendly fun, along with a new adults-only component, Butterflies & Brews .
“We’re thrilled to offer something different for our guests this year at the Butterfly Experience with Butterflies & Brews,” said Kimberly Franz, marketing director for Discover Dunwoody. “This annual event is well-loved by the community, so we are excited to have the opportunity to partner with a local restaurant for a brand-new event that will give guests the chance to enjoy a night out filled with delicious food and the unparalleled beauty
found at Dunwoody Nature Center.”
For families, the traditional Butterfly Experience is the perfect place to get up close and personal with butterflies at the Dunwoody Nature Center while learning about this delicate species from educators. The newly added Pollinator Pathway will lead guests station-to-station throughout the park and offer activities, crafts and educational experiences for everyone. Tickets for this local favorite will be sold in 20-minute time slots and can be purchased at DunwoodyNature.org for $10 per person, with children 3 and younger admitted for free.
On August 20 from 5-8 p.m., the new adult-only Butterflies & Brews event will include live music along with food and a bar by Porter Brew and Que. Tickets for the event are $30 each including two drink vouchers, access to a buffet complete with vegetarian options, and entry to the butterfly tent. Visitors who attend this part of the event can spend the evening exploring the wonders of nature, relaxing while listening to live music and indulging in delicious cuisine and signature brews with friends.
