Annual Events near Our Mariposa Area Vacation Rentals
Mariposa Storytelling Festival
Featuring music, humor, history and local culture, there's a reason this festival has stuck around and been so popular since it first started in 1986—it's an enlightening good time that just gets better year after year. Now, at the beginning of every March, residents and locals alike get the best end of the talking stick—the one where the storytellers tell the stories! Storytelling parallels the lines of some of the most ancient forms of entertainment, communication and history-keeping in existence—and the Mariposa Storytelling Festival keeps that going.
Mariposa Annual Butterfly Festival
All native Spanish speakers call butterflies mariposa. Why? Well, because that's the Spanish name for butterflies! Now, during the first weekend of every Mariposa May, people know it's time for butterflies! The Mariposa Annual Butterfly Festival gladly celebrates its namesake with a fun-filled weekend of live butterfly releases, a parade, a wonderful art and artisan show, live entertainment and a whole lot more. Kids will especially love the live butterfly release that is a wonder to behold and a beautiful harbinger of spring. Come celebrate with us!
