Central Coast Parks Presents: 4th Annual Butterfly Ball

Saturday, October 14, 5 – 9 pm 2023
Octagon Barn Center
4400 Octagon Way, San Luis Obispo


We are thrilled to announce that on October 14th, 2023, we will be hosting our 4th annual Butterfly Ball! We look forward to continuing the success of last year’s event and further supporting the western monarch butterfly. Join us for a night filled with dance and entertainment, informative presentations from local experts, plated dinner by Trumpet Vine Catering, a silent auction and an awards ceremony.

Last year, we hosted our first ever Metamorphosis Awards Ceremony to acknowledge people in our community who make a difference in monarch conservation. Read about last year’s winners and make your 2023 nominations here. Nominations are due August 25.

This year’s gala, An Adventure in Wonderland, will be in support of western monarch butterflies and expanding the Western Monarch Trail by expanding our outreach and education to more locations along their migration route. Come join us in your best cocktail attire and/or Alice in Wonderland inspired outfits! View photos from our 2022 event from photographer Tim Wills de Tone here.

Early bird tickets will go on sale Monday, July 17th. Stay tuned for more information!
