“Bartram’s Garden is proud to host the Philadelphia Honey Festival and spread awareness about how much we rely on honey bees. Honey Fest is a fun family event, and it also shares the importance of stewarding our natural environment so we can ensure that our native bee population thrives. We are proud to partner with the Philadelphia Beekeepers Guild on an event that is so important and unique in our city.” Bartram’s Garden, Executive Director, Maitreyi Roy.

Bartram’s Garden (54th Street & Lindbergh Blvd., Philadelphia 19143) hosts the final day of the festival on Sunday, September 9th from 10 am – 4 pm. Special features include a children’s carnival, a presentation by the Philadelphia Insectarium, Children’s Bee Parade, native plants sale, a marketplace with local crafts.

On site, we’ll be having our annual fall plant sale which offers a broad seasonal selection of perennial plants, trees, shrubs, and vines as well as horticultural staff experts to help answer questions. If you are looking for fall color or fall flowers Bartram’s garden features a mostly native selection of plants as part of the garden’s honey fest. Fall is also one of the best times to plant!

Parks on Tap Jr. makes its debut for the final day of the Philadelphia Honey Festival 2017 at Bartram’s Garden.This is a mini version of the Philadelphia Parks and Recreation, Fairmount Park Conservancy and Avram Hornik of FCM Hospitality traveling beer garden. Parks on Tap Jr. provides similar concessions and amenities as our traditional beer garden, but in a “junior” setup for one day park pop-ups as well as summer long series that run weekly.

Parking: We encourage people to take public transportation, but if you are driving we have designated parking areas. Parking is $5 per car for the day.
