Bama Bug Fest

Hosted by University of Alabama:  What hatched as a small nature-themed museum event just a few years ago, has metamorphosed into the Bama Bug Fest, a community celebration of “bugs”. What the general public calls “bugs” are more properly know as arthropods, a group that makes up three-quarters of all animal species on Earth, and includes insects (butterflies, grasshoppers, beetles), arachnids (spiders and scorpions), myriapods (centipedes and millipedes) and crustaceans (crabs, shrimps and crayfish), as well as true bugs (like cicadas and plant-hoppers).

Since “bugs” are often maligned in our society, this event serves as an important opportunity to educate the public about the important roles these creatures serve in our world, and to celebrate the amazing diversity of arthropods that can be found right here in Alabama.

Bama Bug Fest is crawling your way in April 2021! This virtual, all-things-bug event has a little something for all ages and will take place from April 22-24, 2021. Though we are social distancing this year, we’re not missing out on any of the bug fun!

Bama Bug Fest 2021 is a virtual event housed right here on the Bama Bug Fest website. This year’s virtual Bama Bug Fest will feature four video premieres on the UA Museums’ YouTube Channel! During these video premieres, you’ll have the opportunity to participate in a YouTube live chat with our experts! Even if you miss the live video premiere, feel free to write a question or comment in the YouTube Comment Section and we’ll get back to you!
