Many of us spend our warm-weather days and nights dousing ourselves with DEET to avoid encounters with bugs, but for those interested in doing the exact opposite, the Cincinnati Museum Center’s BugFest lets you get up close and personal with a bunch of creepy crawlies. Immerse yourself in the world of arthropods and learn about how bugs play an important part in our ecosystem. Events and vendors throughout the museum will let you interact with insects, mount your own entomological specimen, dissect a bug, watch cockroach races and even taste Italian-style insect dishes at the Gnatty Café.


10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday. Free with admission to the Natural History & Science Museum ($5.50-$10.50) or all-museum pass ($5.50-$14.50). Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal, 1301 Western Ave., Queensgate, cincymuseum.org.
