Stanley's Second Annual Butterfly Festival

  • Stanley's Greenhouse 3029 Davenport Road Knoxville, TN, 37920 United States

Stanley's Greenhouse celebrates everything to do with butterflies again this year with our Second Annual Butterfly Festival, on Saturday, August 12, from 9:00 to 5:00.

Last year's festival featured a Monarch butterfly release, however, since our native butterfly population continues to drop, national butterfly organizations are advising against butterfly releases. At Stanley's we want to do everything we can to save our pollinators, so we are focusing this year on native butterflies in the wild featuring:

  • A Nature Walk through the Stanley/Davenport Farm led by Steve McGaffin, education curator of Zoo Knoxville, starting at 11:00 a.m. McGaffin is also coordinator of the Tennessee Butterfly Monitoring Network and will give us the latest news on our native butterflies and what we can be doing to support them.
  • An expansion of last year's popular Children's Butterfly Workshop (9:30-11:30 a.m.) to allow children to join the fun in progress if they arrive at the festival later than 9:30, or can leave the workshop early to join the nature walk at 11:00.
  • Trees, shrubs, perennials, and annuals that you can plant in the fall (or spring) to attract and support our local butterflies.
  • Music
  • Exhibits
  • Refreshments
  • And another workshop that we are trying to finalize now!

So, come on out to Stanley's on August 12 for this fun (and free!) celebration of (perhaps) our most beautiful pollinator.
