Bug Festival comes to Zilker Park Saturday

Matthew Odam

The sixth annual Bug Festival comes to Zilker Park at 8 p.m. on Saturday. The gathering, billed as “zany experience, party and potluck” is an informational and hands-on event focused on the nutritional value of eating bugs. It’s a BYOB&B fest, meaning bring your own beer and bugs. For more information on the festival, which costs $5 a person, and to find out which bugs to bring (scorpions, grasshoppers, etc.), visit
