A Place for Celebrations

In News by Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory

The Conservatory is truly a special place. When we look back on the year and see the number of events and celebrations we’ve been chosen to host we are truly humbled and reminded how lucky we are to have such an amazing space to share with the community. From engagements to baby showers to celebrations of life, the Conservatory is a place where people come to celebrate new beginnings of all kinds.

Our front line staff get to see it daily – someone opening a box of butterflies to find an engagement ring hidden in the bottom; a glowing mother-to-be, ecstatic because a butterfly just landed on her growing belly; newlyweds walking back up the aisle, holding hands for the first time as a married couple; a family honouring a lost loved one with a symbolic butterfly release.

To our Naturalist, Andalyne, this makes perfect sense. “Butterflies symbolize so many things – moving through life cycles, renewal and rebirth, any kind of powerful transformation. It makes the Conservatory an extra special place to celebrate life’s events, happy or sad.”

Cayla, our Events Manager, agrees. “As a venue, we’re centrally located in Waterloo Region, close to Guelph, Brantford, and even Hamilton. And of course we provide all the amenities – private rental spaces, wifi, free parking, customizable catering options, things like that. But what really sets us apart is the butterflies. They’re meaningful, they’re special.”

From all of the staff here at the Conservatory, we’re honoured to be able to share our special space with you. Thank you to all of our visitors for choosing us as a place to make memories, a place to celebrate, and a place to find comfort. We wish you all a safe and happy holiday season!
