Join the Regatta and release a Monarch butterfly in honor of a special someone, in memory of a loved one, or just for fun! Monarch butterflies are now available for pre-purchase (see below).
Claim your pre-purchased butterfly at the table that corresponds with the first letter of the purchaser’s last name between 2:30-3:30 PM on Sunday, August 8th. This release fills the sky with the color and movement of one of nature’s most beautiful creatures, the Western Pennsylvania Monarch. After 4:00 PM, individuals who pre-purchased Monarchs are welcome to release their butterflies in private, or alongside the mass release.
