Wildflower & Nature Festival

A Free Admission Family Event

The Wildflower & Nature Festival will be returning in 2019! This is a great event for the entire family.

The Wildflower & Nature Festival shines a spotlight on our local beauty. This event is centered around the nature of Butte County focusing mainly on the Oroville area. The festival will be free admission and will have tons of fun activities to offer for all ages. We will have bus tours to see the wildflowers on Table Mountain, a children’s craft and game area, and live music. Local businesses will hold booth spaces to sell handmade and natural items or provide educational information and materials to guests. We will also have a Food Truck Alley for food vendors!

Guided Bus Tours to Table Mountain

In partnership with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, we will be offering two guided bus tours to table mountain during the event. Seats are reserved with a $10 donation per person and seats fill up fast! More information to come for 2019!

Notice: Due to the ruggedness of the rocky, hilly terrain (no trails), weather conditions (can tend to be windy) and emphasis for adults on the tours (botanical and geologic information), these tours are best suited for children 8 years old and above.  Families with young children are advised to enjoy a short, self-guided tour.  North Table Mountain Ecological Reserve is open daily.
