2013 Participants in

National Honey Bee Day


Below are the association and individual programs that participated in the 2011 National Honey Bee Day program. We have copied over the 2011 participants to continue the list for National Honey Bee Day 2012.

AUGUST 17, 2013 

 National Honey Bee Day

PLEASE NOTE: The National Honey Bee Day program is based on education and promotion of the beekeeping industry. We realize that the public expects to have honey and other items available for purchase at such events. Selling honey or signing up new beekeepers to the association is expected. Having a few fliers at the end of the market booth where you normally sell honey does not constitute a "program". We will NOT list individual or company events that are solely based on profiting from the National Honey Bee Day event.


For listing on this page, two requirements must be met: 1) A program must be tailored to educate, promote,  and advance beekeeping to the public. 2) The event must be FREE to attend, unless extenuating circumstances dictate otherwise.
