Butterfly Festival


Butterfly enthusiasts from around the world are lured by the many species found on Mt. Magazine. From the first Mt. Magazine International Butterfly Festival held in 1997, the festival has enticed thousands of people from more than 45 of the United States and half a dozen countries.

Arkansas has a total of 127 resident species of butterflies, and of those, 91 appear on Mt. Magazine’s plateau-like summit. Virtually all Arkansas resident butterflies are represented in plentiful numbers on the mountain. The Diana Fritillary -- seen only occasionally in other parts of the United States -- consistently reproduces on the mountain, making Mt. Magazine one of the country's biological "hot spots" -- a living butterfly "Eden." Mt. Magazine is part of the "Tri-Peaks State Parks Destination" which includes two nearby sister parks located at Mount Nebo (near Dardanelle) and Petit Jean Mountain (near Morrilton.)

The festival officially begins at 10 a.m. in downtown Paris at the North Logan County Fair Grounds with craft and food vendors, live music, helicopter rides, petting zoo, dog contest, kidz zone, art and photo contest, live butterfly observatory and so much more! Don't forget to stop at Mt. Magazine State Park for activities on top of the mountain like horticultural and butterfly seminars, nature walks with interpreters and other family-friendly events. The date is set in advance on a pre-determined Friday and Saturday in mid-to-late June.
