Come for the Honey, Stay for the Education




The Philadelphia Beekeepers Guild (PBG) eighth annual Philadelphia Honey Festival will take place from September 7, 9 and 10 only at three historic sites—Glen Foerd on the Delaware, Wyck Historic House and Bartram’s Garden—to raise awareness about the importance of honeybees to our environment, our food supply and our economy, and to promote urban beekeeping and gardening.

All three historic locations offer visitors family friendly activities, including open hive demonstrations, honey extractions, open hive talks, a host of children’s activities,

honey tastings, mead tastings and sales from local beekeepers.

There will also be presentations by John Cambridge, Ph.D., from the Philadelphia Insectarium and bee-bearding demonstration with Don Shump, PBG president and owner of the Philadelphia Bee Company. Each venue will also have additional local community activities.

Locations: Glen Foerd on the Delaware, Grant Ave. and Milnor St.; Wyck Historic House, Garden and Farm, 6026 Germantown Ave.; Bartram’s Garden, 54th St. and Lindbergh Blvd. For a complete schedule of activities, visit PhillyHoneyFest.com.
