10th Annual Philadelphia Honey Festival (2019)

A small parade of young children in a meadow, carrying a large paper mache bee and lead by an adult in a bee costume

September 8, 2019 @ 5:00 am - 11:00 am

The FINAL day of the Philadelphia Honey Festival—Sunday, September 8th at Bartram’s Garden! Come celebrate 10 years of HoneyFest with us.

Honey Festival is a Philadelphia tradition that kicks off the fall season in our region. Everyone is back from the shore and it’s a beautiful time to get outside and celebrate nature, from the busy honey bee to lesser-known native pollinators like solitary bees & wasps. Come try & buy local Philadelphia honey and enjoy all the free family fun we have to offer at Bartram’s Garden:

  • Arts & Crafts
  • Fall Plant Sale
  • Vendors
  • Open Hive Demonstrations & Honey Extractions
  • Talks from Beekeeping Experts
  • Children’s Parade
  • …and more!

Learn about all the other Honey Festival events here. We look forward to seeing you!
