GloryBee® is hosting our 44th annual Bee Weekend event on Friday, April 20 - Saturday, April 21. This free two-day community event is packed with beekeeping education, distribution of pre-ordered packages of live bees, live demonstrations, honey sampling, onsite food vendors and family friendly activities. With all of the activities and education opportunities, you don’t have to be a beekeeper to attend – and it is fun for the whole family!
Bee Weekend will be held on Friday, April 20 from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and on Saturday, April 21 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. GloryBee founder Dick Turanski, and second-generation President, Alan Turanski, will be demonstrating live bee installation into hives and will be available for any questions you may have about beekeeping and the installation process. The demonstrations are a must-see; for non-beekeepers, they offer a rare chance to see a colony of bees up close. Demonstration times will be on Friday, April 15 at 9:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. and again on Saturday, April 21 at 9 a.m., 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Also, don’t miss Dick’s Bee Amazed presentation, a talk for anyone interested in learning about bees at 10 a.m. on Saturday.
The GloryBee Factory Store will be open during this event so you can purchase honey, beekeeping supplies, bee-related gifts, apparel and more. Come see the bees up-close and learn more about these tiny and amazing pollinators!
