Flutterby Children's Art Festival in Rosemary Beach

What: Flutterby Children's Art Festival in Rosemary Beach

The annual Flutterby Festival, one of South Walton's most popular fall events, is returning to Rosemary Beach Nov. 5-6 from 10am-4pm. Flutterby Festival celebrates the arts and the migration of the Monarch Butterfly along Scenic Highway 30A.    

As part of the annual tradition, children create their own butterfly wing masterpieces to wear in the butterfly costume parade each afternoon at 3:45pm. Kids will also enjoy using their creativity to build other butterfly crafts. Master Gardener Snookie Parish will be on hand teaching children the art and science of building their own butterfly garden. Celebrating art and nature, hundreds of butterfly paintings created by Walton County students will be on display throughout the festival.

This year’s festival will include a local “celebrity” dunking booth, Imagine Faces face-painting booth, a science area, hot dogs by Dog Man Du, live music by Ohana Institute students, numerous children’s activities and a chance to win exciting raffle prizes.

New this year, festival-goers wanting to experience Flutterby in groups may reserve tables with seating for up to 10 people. At $50 per table, per hour, this offers the perfect space for painting butterfly wings with friends, group gatherings, playdates, parties and picnic dining. Reservations may be made in advance by emailing

Admission to the Flutterby Festival is free, although some activities may require a small fee.
