Get ready for the year’s most exciting event, BugFest! This is the 20th Anniversary and will be on Saturday, September 17th! The daylight portion of the event runs from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. and is followed by the Evening Insectival from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. This year’s event will feature many old favorites such as the world famous Café Insecta and Arthropod Olympics. This year our theme is ANTS! As always, the Museum needs your help to keep BugFest the biggest and best event of its type in the world!
All volunteers get a famous BugFest t-shirt, access to the hospitality areas, and priority parking. You will be emailed a parking pass upon confirmation of your shifts and assignments and you must present that parking pass to gain admittance. Also, please be advised that Jones Street AND Edenton Street (between Wilmington Street and Salisbury Street) will be closed from 5:30 pm Friday through Saturday night at midnight. Traffic will be detoured around the State Capitol and back to Jones Street via the one-way streets surrounding the Capitol Square.

If you would like to be a part of this bug-tastic event, please fill out our Volunteer Form by September 5th. You will receive an email confirming your shifts and assignments by September 14th. When you arrive at the Museum on the 17th, please report to volunteer check-in 30 minutes prior to your shift(s) to confirm your volunteer area(s) and pick up your event materials. Volunteer Registration will be outside, on the Plaza; the first tent on the left as you look at the Museum. Feel free to call me/Kari Wouk at the Museum (919-707-9885) for more details.
The Town of Cary is hosting the 40th anniversary of the Lazy Daze Arts & Crafts Festival on Saturday, August 27, 2016 & Sunday, August 28, 2016 on Cary’s Town Hall Campus. In order for this to be possible, the festival is in need of over 300 volunteers like you! There are several different opportunities, like assisting with festival load in & out, booth sitting, and staffing the information tent. Shifts are available from August 26, 2016 – August 28, 2016 for a myriad of time slots. Because of the high demand for volunteers this year, feel free to sign up for multiple shifts or multiple days. There will be two volunteer training sessions offered the week of August 8, 2016, and while not mandatory, they are highly recommended (details to come soon). These hours can count as K-Family hours too.
