Audubon’s Monarchs and Margaritas for Adults Only

Jamestown, NY – The Monarch Butterfly Festival is for all ages, but the night before is for adults only.

Three years ago Audubon Community Nature Center staff decided it would be fun to add a new twist to the all-day Saturday event with its activities for all ages. Since then Friday evening has been Monarchs and Margaritas – a special treat just for grown-ups.

At the 5-7 p.m. celebration, while supporting Monarchs you can enjoy an exclusive sneak peek of the Festival, plus food, games, and margaritas.

The Nature Center multipurpose room will be transformed into a butterfly house full of beautiful flowers and Monarch Butterflies and ready for visiting by the evening’s participants as well as Saturday festival-goers.

Bring your friends for a crowd-free/child-free experience with the live butterflies and a chance to win some great prizes.

Monarchs and Margaritas theme is inspired by the migration to Mexico the Monarchs will begin when they are released at the close of Saturday’s Festival.

Each admission includes two drink tickets for margaritas. Miley’s is providing the drinks and catering south-of-the-border-themed appetizers with vegetarian options. Non-alcoholic beverages will also be available.

Monarchs need help. Throughout the last decade, Monarch populations have been decimated by habitat loss, deforestation, and drought. Through a fun game, informational presentations, and the opportunity to view all stages of the Monarch life cycle up close you will learn more about their plight and how you can help.

New this year is a silent auction with Monarch migration themed items.

A hint for first-timers: Bring some spare change for extra drinks, to get ahead in the game, and to shop for some great butterfly-themed merchandise.

Reserve early: admission is limited. Cost is $25 for those who reserve and pay by Wednesday, August 23, or $30 if you pay at the door. Register online through the Programs and Events page at auduboncnc.org or pay by phone with a credit card at (716) 569-2345 during business hours.
