Summer Buzz Festival – June 25

A Botanical Bonanza! Bring out the family for a fun-filled day celebrating Bees, Butterflies, and all things Summer.

WICHITA – This summer-themed event is designed with the whole family in mind at the Botanica. Celebrate bees and butterflies and their role as pollinators with crafts, interactive education, and games. Guests will also be invited to visit the Alexander Bee House for an up-close and personal look at bees at work, and see if you can find the queen bee!

We’re buzzing about all of the special activities and entertainment being provided by our awesome community partners.

  • The Butterfly Hatchery is hosting an educational station featuring caterpillars that kids can hold and interact with and will have several types of pollinator-friendly plants for sale.
  • R & J Bee Rescue will be displaying Botanica’s new working hive and will be hosting activities in the bee house, as well as a honey tasting station.
  • Flow Foundry will be providing a portable aerial trapeze stand for guests to try out aerial yoga with hanging silks, as well as a hula hoop dance area.

*All guests, including members, must reserve their timeslot in advance. No tickets will be sold at the door.
