IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER: You must arrive at least 45 min prior to your release time to get your butterfly and proper instructions. Ticketing is limited and MUST be purchased online to guarantee admission to the event. Due to our capacity, we reserve the right to close onsite gate sales in the event we become sold out. We are strictly limiting ticket sales BY DATES to ensure online ticket guests gets multiple days to try to see the butterflies. NOTE: Butterflies are a native creature and while 2000 will be released during the event, we cannot guarantee they will stay close or that their native friends will be in abundance or even present if the weather conditions are not ideal. Because of these factors that affect butterfly viewing, your online purchased weekend tickets include a free 5 day weekday pass (9th-13th) to give you a longer opportunity for better viewing conditions. The event is an outdoor event and therefore held weather permitting. Should this event be canceled by Blooms & Berries tickets will be exchanged for Blooms & Berries Fall On The Farm tickets. NO cash refunds. In addition, while this event is titled “Butterfly Fest”, the overall theme is about the importance of Pollinators. The conditions we’ve created to be ideal for butterflies are also ideal for other pollinators such as Bees. Please be aware that bees are important, welcome and they will be present and doing their job of pollinating our flowers during our event. LASTLY: While we are doing everything we can to release butterflies, While unlikely, there are conditions out of our control especially at the butterfly farm and in shipping.
