2017 Participants in


National Honey Bee Day


                  AUGUST 19, 2017 

            National Honey Bee Day


*If Your Bee Group is having a NHBD

 program on Aug 19th, please let us know so we can add your association to the list of participants. Thank you! We are happy to list all NHBD activities.

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 o

therwise.

Members of the Omaha Bee Club in Nebraska holding their first National Honey Bee Day program in 2011
