Saturday, September 23, 2023 from 9am to 3pm. Stocking Hall.

Insectapalooza is the annual, one-day Insect Festival hosted by the Department of Entomology at Cornell University. Insectapalooza is an interactive, hands-on experience that features hundreds of live insects, spiders, and other fascinating arthropods. Popular favorites include the live Butterfly Room and Arthropod Zoo. Exhibits explore the extraordinary Cornell University Insect Collection, pollination, plant-insect interactions, biodiversity of ants, bees, and soil insects, and how bugs work. Learn how to combat arthropod pests like the spotted lantern fly, ticks, and mosquitos. New this year, there are short workshops on careers in entomology, beekeeping, pollinator gardens, macrophotography, and reducing the impacts of lantern flies and ticks. Numerous kid-friendly crafts. And much, much more.

Insectapalooza is fun and educational for children, teens and adults of all ages. Insectapalooza reflects the countless wonderful ways that insects interact with people and impact our lives — for better or for worse.

Come see the bizarre, bad, and beneficial of the insect world.
