Over a million species. Only one Bug Fair.

Mark your calendars on May 16 and 17, 2020 for a two-day festival celebrating 34 years of Bug Fair – our winged, multi-legged, squirmy, and sometimes bug-eyed friends.

Visit a variety of exhibitors – and see everything from exotic insect collections to pet tarantulas, from millipedes to centipedes, from bug-related products, like honey and silk, to bug-inspired artwork and jewelry.

Visit the main stage to watch Bug Chefs whip up protein-filled snacks and explore the Nature Gardens for the chance to go on bug hunts, get crafty, experience up-close encounters with crawly creatures, and more!
