Come see the Bizarre, Bad, and Beneficial of the insect world. Date TBD

The annual, one-day insect fair is 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.

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