MSBA 6th annual Maryland Honey Harvest Festival


MSBA 6th annual Maryland Honey Harvest Festival




6th annual Maryland Honey Harvest Festival is September 21, 9AM - 3PM, at the Patuxent Research Refuge National Wildlife Visitor Center* in Laurel. (see attached flyer)




Public outreach is a cornerstone of the MSBA mission statement** and this is our only annual outreach event.  The bees need the public to understand and appreciate their value to our food supply and the environment and we need your support!


We are lucky to have the Friends of Patuxent jointly host this event with us.  They provide the following for only a 10% fee:



a beautiful, wheelchair-accessible facility (indoor & outdoor areas, auditorium)


lovely grounds with hiking trails


30-minute guided tram tours

The purpose of this website is to promote honey beekeeping by providing a forum in which current honey beekeepers may become more knowledgeable of best practices and the public can become more, and accurately, informed on the benefits of honey bees.
