The Maryland State Beekeepers will hold its Fall 2016 Meeting and 80th Annual Honey Show on Saturday, November 12 at the Maryland Department of Agriculture at 30 Harry S Truman Parkway in Annapolis. Our keynote is Kent Williams, a former EAS president with 30 years experience in sustainable, commercial, and sideline beekeeping.
Meetings are free and open to the public, refreshments are served, and doors open at 8 AM.
The Honey Show offers an opportunity for beekeepers young and old to display their pride and skill in their craft, with over a thousand dollars of prizes in dozens of categories available!
Our agenda includes local and national speakers with expertise in practical beekeeping, as well as the latest apicultural science. Several vendors will also be in attendance.
Join the Maryland State Beekeepers, Brookside Gardens, the Brookside Nature Center and pollinator-friendly scientists and vendors to celebrate honeybees and pollinators.
Talk to beekeepers, watch honey being harvested, buy local honey and bee products, and enjoy family-friendly activites and crafts. We'll be buzzing about pollinators all day long!
