2019 Firefly Festival in Review

The 7th Annual Pennsylvania Firefly Festival was a great success!  The weather was sunny and bright for the daytime activities, but the cool night time temperatures couldn't squash our enthusiasm. The attendance topped out at 663! Thank you to all the visitors for your patience and consideration of the forest, the Black Caddis Ranch and the PA Firefly Festival organization.

A huge thank you goes out to over 50 amazing people who worked to make this happen again. We applaud our dedicated volunteers, our vendors and educators, our talented entertainers, our generous donors...and of course our amazing festival attendees.  You make PAFF what it is!

The Pennsylvania Firefly Festival, Inc has a mission of educating the public about firefly science and conservation.  PAFF also celebrates the annual PA Firefly Festival on the last Saturday in June.  This coincides with the mating displays of over fifteen different species of firefly in the Allegheny National Forest area including the Synchronous Firefly and the unique "Chinese Lantern" firefly along the Tionesta Creek.
