    The City of Austin invites you to celebrate trees, butterflies, bees, and all creatures from your home, yard, and locations across our city with 2-weeks of nature-based events. Join us for live and virtual experiences and activities, with opportunities to stay inside or step out. From a windowsill or planter, to a patio garden, schoolyard, or park - you can explore and enjoy nature with the Roots & Wings Festival!

    And be sure to join us at the Official Kickoff Party on Sunday, October 24 from 1 pm-5 pm at Zilker Botanical Garden! There will be family-friendly fun throughout the garden with many opportunities to connect with trees, butterflies, and nature in our city.

    The Roots & Wings Festival is Austin’s combined celebration of Arbor Day and Monarch Appreciation Day.
