Join us at the San Diego Botanic Garden this year for our one-of-a-kind Insect Festival at the San Diego Botanic Garden! This unique event features thousands of fascinating creepy-crawlies including live insects, lizards, snakes, and the famous “Madagascar hissing cockroaches.”

Children can practice bug collecting, hands-on insect arts and crafts, and even taste cooked mealworm larva (in various flavors such as mesquite, teriyaki, and barbeque!).

Entomologists and other bug experts will be available for questions and more than 20 informational booths will teach and entertain children and adults alike.

Sponsored by the County of San Diego Department of Agriculture Weights and Measures, Lloyd Pest Control, and the San Diego Botanic Garden.

Free for members and children 12 and under.
Non-members free with paid admission.
