Bug out as thousands of specimens, dead and alive, fly, buzz, or crawl to the Burke Museum for this favorite annual family event. Get eye-to-eye with giant water bugs, examine bugs of all kinds from the Burke’s collections, try some buggy snacks, and more!

This year we hope to have two headline performers: Local garden guru Ciscoe Morris (a long-time Scarabs member) and Nancy Stewart, a singer of buggy songs for kids!

You can also do bug crafts, look through compound-eye glasses, see tiny insects through a microscope, watch a real entomologist at work, get tips on how to draw insects, and much more!

This event is presented in partnership with SCARABS: The Bug Society.
