Celebrate nature’s most beautiful pollinators with an all-new festival created in their honor. The inaugural Monarch Festival takes place at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden (3400 Vine St., Cincinnati) on Saturday, Sept. 21 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Learn why monarch butterflies are so important to the environment and enjoy hands-on activities like decorating trees with paper monarchs, tagging and releasing them, visiting educational booths and walking in a pollinator parade.
