It’s time to celebrate and appreciate our slimy, scaly friends! HerpFest returns on Saturday, June 5th, 2021 from 10:00am-3:00pm. This year we are changing locations and will be at the Longleaf Botanical Gardens in order to have plenty of room to social distance while enjoying family-friendly crafts and interactives including a dinosaur dig, reptile and amphibian themed presentations, and live animals. Live animals will be on display courtesy of the Alabama Herpetological Society, Jacksonville State University, Cheaha State Park, Cook Museum, the Urban Turtle Project, and Anniston Museum of Natural History. During HerpFest, enjoy a delicious lunch or snack from Izzie’s Treats in the Sensory Garden.
HerpFest is an annual festival for people of all ages to learn about snakes, turtles, frogs, and more reptile and amphibian friends!
While you are here, enjoy all that Anniston Museums and Gardens has to offer by exploring Anniston Museum of Natural History and Berman Museum with herp-related scavenger hunts and artifact displays.
HerpFest is $5 per person and members are $2 per person. Tickets are available for purchase day of. Museum admission is not included in program cost.
