September 9, 2017, Saturday - Minneapolis Monarch Festival-Festival de la Monarca™

Time: 10 am – 4 pm

Location: Near the Lake Nokomis Community Center, Lake Nokomis, East 49th Street and Woodlawn Blvd.

The annual Monarch Festival celebrates the monarch butterfly's amazing migration from Minnesota to Mexico. Using art, music, dance, games, native plants, prairie tours and food, the festival raises awareness of the need to provide and protect monarch habitat.

Art, Music, Dance, Games, Tours and More - These activities are free and open to the public. No registration required.

The Monarch Festival takes place near the Nokomis Naturescape, a certified Monarch Waystation, featuring native plants that monarchs need to lay eggs, host caterpillars and get nectar. The festival features several vendors with native plants for sale so participants can grow a monarch habitat at home.

Festival participants can listen to great music, dance up a storm, make a milkweed seed bomb, enjoy great food, get up-close with monarch caterpillars and butterflies, get their hands dirty and make some art, tag and release a monarch butterfly, play games and much more.  

Visit The Minneapolis Monarch Festival website for the full line-up of up Monarch Festival music, food, art, activities, and native plant sale information. These activities are all free and open to the public. No registration is required.
