The Brackenridge Park Conservancy announced the return of the 2022 Monarch Butterfly & Pollinator Festival on Sat., Oct. 8 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

The festival is part of a month-long celebration of pollinators as migrating monarch butterflies move through the South Texas region.

A People for Pollinators Parade and inaugural Caterpillar Train ride (converted out of the San Antonio Zoo train during October) will kick off festivities. Other featured activities include a monarch butterfly migration obstacle course for kids, butterfly tagging, and live bee hive demonstrations.

All events will be free + open to the public and will bring together 20+ community partners. Learn more about featured events online, and make plans to head festival at the Pecan Grove this October 2022.
