EVENT DETAILS
 
THE 4TH ANNUAL MOTH BALL
 
A celebration of moths
(and caterpillars)
and other magnificent creatures of the night 
at
Plimoth Plantation
Featuring The Caterpillar Lab of Keene, New Hampshire!

View LIVE the region's coolest caterpillars: caterpillars that mimic snakes, that dress up in flower costumes, caterpillars that have inflatable tails and horns and more.


Stay late—we'll lure the moths of Plymouth to special black-light traps, set up on the grounds of the Plantation—the later the hour the more spectacular the moths that show up.

Half price discounts for Plimoth Plantation members!

Fun Activities for all ages: 

  • Make your own moth wings
  • Become-a-Moth face-painting
  • See live and unusual caterpillars from The Caterpillar Lab
  • Identify moths with special microscopes for examining the live moths captured (humanely and released) by you that evening
  • Enjoy our special moth cake, popcorn, root beer floats (the preferred beverage of lepidopterists world-wide) and a variety of wormy treats

—Stay on the lookout for any bats that may try to crash the party!
