Bug Fair

9:30 am - 5 pm
Members get in early at 9 am each day

Members enjoy a special 20% discount on Museum Store purchases all day long with valid membership and picture ID.
Exposition Park will soon be overrun with winged creatures and creepy-crawlies who are convening at the Museum, along with our scientists, for North America’s biggest bug festival.

Nearly 70 Exhibitors Fill our Museum Halls!

This year, the buzz is even louder because it’s the Year of the Fly. Visitors can cradle a bug or two in their palms and learn about the homes and habits of a wide variety of roaming insects from Entomology Curator Dr. Brian Brown (one of the Museum’s fly experts). Government agencies, educational institutions, and entomological societies will be on hand to answer bug-related questions. The fair will also be abuzz with exhibitors, displaying everything from live specimens to bug-related products, such as honey, silk, and wax as well as bug-inspired artwork.

They'll be demonstrations with Bug Chef David George Gordon (world renowned Insect Chef and author of the Eat-a-Bug Cookbook), Daniella Martin of Girl Meets Bug (, and David Gracer, owner of Small Stock Food Strategies, a company devoted to making insects accessible as food to all. All three will be on hand to whip up some bug delicacies for the adventurous snacker.

Over my dead body

Also, part of LAPFF.

The story revolves around three main characters and a body. Hyun-chul, a former biotech researcher, and his senior colleague's daughter Dong-hwa, team up with Jin-woo, a man who faked his suicide for the insurance money, to steal a body.
