Butterfly Release

Join us at Port Farms for this unforgettable experience! On August 19th and 26th, we’ll watch the sky fill with butterflies during our Blooms, Bubbles and Butterflies event! The butterfly release will take place at 2:00 PM each day.


  •  – A Port Farms general admission ticket is required to enter the farm.
  • – Butterfly release tickets can be purchased separately for $10.
  • – If you’d like to watch the release but not release a butterfly, that is included with general admission.
  • – Butterfly sales are while supplies last.
  • – Butterflies come in special packaging. All efforts are made to ensure their safety and livelihood.
  • – The butterflies we will have will be Painted Ladies! They will be coming from a small butterfly farm in Massachusetts called Butterflies & Blueberries!
  • – They are the most widely distributed butterfly in the world. Painted Lady adults can cover up to 100 miles per day & reach a speed of nearly 30 miles per hour.
  • – Think NEW & FRESH when you see any red spots on the envelopes. This is NOT blood! This is a sign of brand new butterflies – the red liquid is meconium. It is excess fluid that was not used during wing formation.
  • – Upon arrival & check in at admissions, you will receive a ticket to redeem your butterfly at the pick-up station, located by the flower field.

The event is finished.
