We’re excited to be kicking off this year’s festival at Glen Foerd on the Delaware. Never been? Well there’s no better time to visit than Friday, September 7th! From 5:00 -9:00 PM we’ll be celebrating everything honey bee!
We’re excited to have three great vendors to help you wet your whistle including Haymaker Meadery, Philly Home Brew and Honest Tea. Donut NV Food Truck will be here too, so make sure you’re ready to grab a sweet treat! And of course we’ll be ready to fill your shopping bag with goods from great local vendors who offer not only local honey and beeswax products, but eco-friendly art and wares as well. Here are some of the great vendors you’ll meet at Glen Foerd:

Some of our favorite community partners will also BEE on hand so stop by and say hello to:

And of course we’ll have plenty of activities available so you can discover the world of beekeeping including open hive talks, Honey extractions, speaker presentations by Kirk Wattles and Dr. Poune Saberi, and the always entertaining Bee Bear Demonstration!
After your evening of fun at Glen Foerd- you can head just down the road for a late night snack with Parks on Tap who will be at Pleasant Hill Park until 11:00 PM!
