Over a million species. Only one Bug Fair.
Thank you for making our 31st annual Bug Fair something to buzz about. We hope you'll bee at next years event!
Bug Fair is a two-day festival celebrating 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!

Over 50 exhibitors showcasing and selling insect products and merchandise
