Stony Kill Hosts Butterfly Festival

Annual event moved to Sunday, Aug. 7

Stony Kill Farm in Wappingers Falls will host its annual Butterfly Festival from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 7 (formerly Aug. 6). Due to the large attendance last year, organizers will add a second butterfly tent with Swallowtails, Painted Ladies and the illusive Monarch.

Visitors may sponsor a butterfly for $10. There also will be an education table with Monarchs in the fours stages of their life cycle, Master Gardeners on hand to answer questions, greenhouse volunteers selling potted houseplants and handmade crafts and crafters and food vendors offering their wares, including pottery, jewelry and fresh-made juices.

In addition, learn how to hula hoop with the kids and relax under the trees and enjoy a book at a storytime circle. Admission and parking are free. All proceeds support the care and maintenance of the farm’s livestock.

Stony Kill is located at 79 Farmstead Lane. For more information, visit
