Butterfly Effect

Join us and release a butterfly in memory of a loved one. Everyone is welcome.

Our annual Butterfly Effect is a heartwarming family event that touches the lives of everyone in the Alberni Valley.
The event is family friendly and includes kids' activities, live music, food and more!

Join us at 11th Avenue Park (adjacent to our community office at 2579 10th Ave) on Saturday, August 6, 2022!

Our event starts at noon and ends at 2:30pm, with the release at 1pm.
(Any unclaimed butterflies will be released at that time.)

Purchase a butterfly for release at the event online here, or through our community office, for $25 each.
Please note only 200 butterflies are available for purchase this year, first come first serve. We may sell out prior to the event day.
 

Event Sponsors

We would like to thank all of our sponsors for believing in the important services we provide to the Alberni Valley.

How to Support the Butterfly Effect

Each spring this event brings together members of our community to reminisce about loved ones we have lost. We honour them by releasing a butterfly in their memory. Together we celebrate a beautiful moment when hundreds of Painted Lady butterflies are released into the air.

Purchase a butterfly to support the event, and/or join us for live music, a barbecue and bake sale, and kids' activities!
