Tickets & Info

AES will staff a table where Bug Fest attendees can learn about our Society & sign up for Bug Walks led by AES members to the beautiful Logan Square Garden (across the street from the Academy). Insect displays, literature & the Society’s vintage nineteenth-century seal embosser will be on hand to imprint the AES logo on Bug Fest keepsakes. This year the Academy will screen in its auditorium on Saturday evening the acclaimed 1996 documentary film Microcosmos showcasing the lives of insects and other small invertebrates. An insect-themed fun packed weekend is in store for all!
