Release & Remember

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 10 • 1:00 – 3:00 PM

Honor Your Loved Ones with a Butterfly Dedication

Mark your calendars for our 12th annual Release & Remember event on Sunday, Sept. 10 at the RiverLoop Amphitheatre in downtown Waterloo. This family-friendly experience is free and open to the public, featuring activities for kids, a picnic lunch and live music by Flatland Ridge – back by popular demand! Our event starts at 1 p.m. and will conclude with a short program at 2:30 and the release of 1,000 monarch butterflies!


This event is an opportunity to remember and celebrate those we love in an extraordinary way. For each memorial or honorary gift of $30, a butterfly will be released. Donors will receive a keepsake certificate to personalize and keep as a reminder of the day.
