Kids can also enjoy a hula hoop contest, butterfly plant learning center, carnival games, bounce houses and a butterfly parade at the end of each day. Flutterby entertainment will be provided by Emerald Coast Middle School Color Guard, 30A Dancewave, Emerald Coast Theatre Company, Ohana Records, 30A Ballet, The Rep Theatre and Seaside Neighborhood School.
Professional artists will be exhibiting and selling their work throughout the weekend, and official Flutterby merchandise featuring butterfly art winner and 3rd grader Carly Coleman will be available for purchase. New this year to the festival will be dog adoptions through Dog Harmony.
Rosemary Beach is full of food and beverage options, and Restaurant Paradis will be on site selling fresh crepes made to order. Admission to the festival is free and open to the public.
