The discovery and documentation of Synchronous Fireflies (Photinus carolinus) in the Allegheny National Forest (read more here) in 2011 and 2012 have engernized the local community who live, work, and recreate in the ANF. The idea for a festival to celbrate the beautiful insect mating displays and educate the public developed sychronously among ANF advocates, and ANF business owners. We contacted each other at the same time saying “Let’s have a Firefly Festival!”


The Allegheny National Forest Firefly Festival Partnership is an intiative of the  Black Caddis Ranch B&B, Tionesta Art Community, Allegheny Defense Project (other participants include the Forest County Visitor Center, the USFS, and other regional tourism businesses).


Sponsors include: HEARTWOOD, Concisous Corners,.....and you! (Note: We will list you as a supporter of the Firefly Festival unless you tell us otherwise by emailing
