MARIPOSA BUTTERFLY FESTIVAL

2017

THE MARIPOSA BUTTERFLY FESTIVAL BRINGS EDUCATION, MUSIC, VENDORS, FOOD, FAMILIES AND FRIENDS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD IN A CELEBRATION OF THE BUTTERFLY AND HONORS OUR UNIQUE AND FRAGILE ECOSYSTEM. HOSTED EVERY FIRST MAY WEEKEND IN BEAUTIFUL MARIPOSA CALIFORNIA, THIS SMALL RURAL SIERRA FOOTHILL COMMUNITY OPENS IT'S ARMS FOR ALL ATTENDING. 

The Mariposa Butterfly Festival Committee needs sponsors for almost 200 Pavilions.

Classroom Butterfly Kit Sponsorships are $50. This includes everything necessary to raise butterflies. Each kit contains approximately 25 caterpillars along with food, a beautiful airy butterfly habitat, and instructions. Kits will be donated to one of the many local classrooms which allows children to safely raise and watch the life cycle of a butterfly. The entire process takes about 40 days and requires very little effort, but the lessons the Butterfly Life Cycle teaches our youth will stay with them for a lifetime. Some schools have special release programs at the Mariposa Creek during the first week of May, and if they cannot make it into Mariposa they have releases at their schools.

 If you would like to help, but do not wish to purchase a butterfly kit, a monetary donation
of $25 or more helps defray the costs of our school educational program.
