The Virginia Tech Department of Entomology presents the 9th Annual Hokie BugFest at both the Squires Student Center and at locations throughout downtown Blacksburg, VA on Saturday, October 5, 2019.

Bug-out at Virginia Tech’s 9th Annual Hokie BugFest! This FREE community event features a BugZoo with over 200 live arthropods, exhibits from regional museums, and endless arts and crafts.

Enter the Human’s Dressed as Dung Beetles Race, Insect-Eating Contest, or one of eight competitions and win a prize! Walk through a Butterfly House, check out Tony Gustin the Bug Whisperer, or witness acrobatic insects at a live Flea Circus. Head to the Lyric Theater for a bug-inspired Children's Story Hour and movie, or build-your-own costume and join the annual Buggin-Out Parade.

One of Virginia Tech’s largest science literacy events, Hokie BugFest will leave you bug-crazed and bug-amazed!

Admission and parking is free. Buses welcome.

A pre-opening S.A.F.E. (Supporting Autism-Friendly Environments) event is again being hosted for adults and children with disabilities starting at 9:00 am in cooperation with Virginia Tech Center for Autism Research. Those individuals will be issued a pass to be in Squires early. You should check in at the event table to seek this access.

Sponsored by Virginia Tech Department of Entomology, Virginia Cooperative Extension 4-H, and the W.B. Alwood Entomological Society.
