Join us and release a monarch butterfly in honor of a special someone, in memory of a loved one, or just for fun! Monarch butterflies are now available for pre-purchase.


This release fills the sky with the color and movement of one of nature's most beautiful creatures, the Western Pennsylvania Monarch. Individuals who pre-purchased Monarchs can release their butterflies in private, and the names (in honor of/in memory of) that were included at the time of purchase will be listed on the Regatta website. At 4PM, we will present a mass release.


The Butterfly Release and the Moraine State Park Regatta are free to attend. In order to release an individual butterfly, it needs to be pre-purchased here.



Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Either bring your printed ticket, or the barcode saved as an image on your phone. If you do not bring your electronic ticket or your printed ticket, we will ask for your ID so that we can confirm your purchase.


Is pre-purchase required?

If you want to release a butterfly, individual Monarchs are $15 each. We strongly encourage you to pre-purchase, as we may have limited individual butterflies for sale on-site. The mass release is free to attend, with no ticket required and no purchase required. 


What are my parking options at the event?

Parking is on the South Shore of Moraine State Park. Parking is free.
