2019 Virginia Honey Bee Festival

Definitely something to BUZZ about!

Saturday, August 17
10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Join the Beekeepers Guild of Southeast Virginia and Norfolk Botanical Garden again this year for a fun filled day with bee products, activities, vendors and great information. Learn how to raise bees and purchase “bee” plants to create a bee friendly yard. Taste honey samples, look inside a bee hive and participate in great activities for the entire family!
