An Octopus Occasion At Butterfly Pavilion

Butterfly Pavilion has welcomed a new 8-armed friend to our Water’s Edge exhibit. To celebrate, we are releasing special tickets that come with a huggable octopus plushie and giving our cephalopod friend a new name with your help!

Tickets for An Octopus Occasion will go on sale November 22nd and be redeemable

December 1st – 19th 2020.

What has 8 arms, insatiable curiosity and the ability to change color on command? If you guessed an octopus, you are correct! 

Last month, Butterfly Pavilion welcomed a new octopus to our facility and to celebrate we are offering a limited supply of ticket packs that include a huggable octopus plushie!

On top of special tickets, we will be turning to our community to pick a name for our invertebrate friend! For details on tickets and naming, see below!


Special Octopus Admission tickets will go on sale November 22nd and will only be available while supplies last!

Octopus Occasion experience is free for current Butterfly Pavilion Members but the plushie is only available with a ticket purchase.

2 for $30 + 1 octopus plushie
4 for $48 + 1 octopus plushie


Help us pick a name for our new octopus!

We looked to our staff and members to help us select potential names, and now it’s time for you to vote for your favorite with a donation! 

Donations for names can be made in person next to our octopus exhibit in Water’s Edge, or with the link below! 

Voting will close on November 28th. The top 3 names with the most donations will be presented to our octopus for them to pick over Facebook Live!
