Bring your friends, bring your family, just be sure to bring your appetite!

Join Little Herds and in.gredients for the Tenth Annual Austin Bug (Eating) Festival, where you can learn about the wonderful world of Entomophagy and maybe try your first bite of bugs.

Quickly becoming a staple for anyone looking for fun new ways to «Keep Austin Weird,» the Austin Bug Festival has fed thousands of folks their first bite of edible insects over the past ten years. Whether whole insects (always cooked!) or snack foods made out of insect ingredients, there's plenty of fun ways for adventurous eaters to experience this exciting new (old) food that just might be the Food of the Future!

Founded by Marjory Wildcraft of The GROW Network in 2008 by convincing some friends to eat bugs in the park, the Austin Bug Festival has grown from a few families getting together, to welcoming hundreds of kids and adults out to try a fun afternoon of learning, curiosity, STEM education and a tour of the exciting new culinary world of insect cuisine.
